Painter Genealogy & History

Painter is an English occupational surname, from the Middle English and Old French peintour or peintor, meaning painter. It is part of a family of occupational surnames that dealt with luxury skilled labor, as opposed to trades like leatherworking, and especially applied to those who applied color to stained glass. This was a major tradesman's occupation in the Middle Ages, particularly for the Church. Painter family history starts with Richard de Paintur, noted in the Feet of Fines of Yorkshire in 1240. Painter genealogy lays claim to several noteworthy individuals, such as Marcel Proust biographer George Painter, WWI veteran and supercentenarian John Painter, and Colts quarterback Curtis Painter.
