One, William Brasier appears in the 1327 "Subsidy Rolls of Essex" and a Thomas Brasyer in the 1381 "Assize Court Rolls of Cambridgeshire".

The crest being a dove holding in its bill an olive branch. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Richard le Brazur, which was dated 1273, in the "Hundred Rolls of Shropshire", during the reign of King Edward 1, known as "The Hammer of the Scots", 1272 - 1307. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax.
