Pisarski Coat of Arms / Pisarski Family Crest

This surname of PISKARSKI is an occupational name for a clerk or scribe, derived from the Polish word PISARZ (from PISAC, to write) with the addition of the surname suffix SKI. The earliest Polish surnames were patronymic. The personal names from which they were derived were mainly Slavonic, but as the Middle Ages progressed, traditional Slavic given names, began to give way to saint's names, mainly of Latin origin. Surnames derived from Slavonic personal names are of early origin, and tend to be borne by aristocratic families. The suffix SKI is also found as an ending of Russian surnames, but these are usually of Polish origin. It was also used by Ashkenazic Jews. By the time most Jewish people on Polish territory were acquiring family names in the late 18th and 19th centuries, it was already widely used as a general surname suffix. The name is also spelt PISKAREV, PISARZ, PISERA, PISAREVSKI, PISAREK, PISARCZYK, PISAREV, PISAREFF and PISARKIEWICZ. This family is descended from Polish nobility. Descendants of the family settled in Russia. Zakharii Fedorov PISKAREV and others of the family served the Russian Throne in noble positions and were the owners of villages. The earliest Polish surnames were patronymic. The personal names from which they were derived were mainly Slavonic, but as the Middle Ages progressed, traditional Slavic given names, began to give way to saint's names, mainly of Latin origin. Surnames derived from Slavonic personal names are of early origin, and tend to be borne by aristocratic families. Many Polish people acquired their surnames by reason of former residence in a town or village. There are nearly 600 families bearing the arms of a horseshoe enclosing a cross. Some names were changed by immigrants whilst on the boat heading for America and Australia. These transformations were usually to names thought by the immigrants to be more respected in their native land than the one he bore. Many Poles added 'ski' to their names to attain a higher social status since such names were accorded more respect from people of Polish extraction. Thus a larger proportion of Polish names carried this termination in America and Australia than in Poland.
