SELLERS Family History

This interesting surname recorded in a variety of spellings including Sellars, Sellers, and Sellors (English ), and Sillars and Sillers (Scottish), has at least four possible origins. Firstly may be a metonymic occupational name for someone employed in the cellars of a great house or monastery. If so the derivation is from the Anglo-French word celler meaning an underground room suitable for keeping food. Secondly, it may be an occupational name for a saddler, from the word seller, which originally denoted a saddler.
