What does the last name houser mean?
The name Houser is Anglo-Saxon in origin. It was often given to a person employed "at the house," which, in most cases, refered to a religious house or convent. The surname Houser is derived from the Old English word hus, which means house. In some cases, the name Houser may be a form of the names Howes, House, Hows, and many others.
I found this and other info at the "house of names" site.
