SALAZAR Family History

Recorded in several spellings including de Salazar, Salazar and Salasar, this famous surname is locational and aristocratic. It derives from various places called 'Salazar', both in the Basque country, and in the province of Burgos, in Spain. It is equally well recorded in both Portugal, and in its various spellings, throughout South America and Mexico. The name is pre 7th century a.d., and means 'The old hall', from 'sala', a hall and 'zahar' - old. The early recordings are all prefixed with the preposition 'de' implying land and estate ownership, but as in most similar surnames, this prefix seems to have been lost, particularly amongst recordings from 'the New World'.
