Skinner Genealogy & History

Skinner genealogy is usually English or Scottish but the derivation is the same. It is an occupational surname denoting someone who gathered, worked with, and sold animal skins. The word derives from the Old Norse "skinn", meaning a hide or pelt. Skinner is one of the oldest occupational surnames known, which is not surprising given that this was an essential trade for all pre-industrial civilizations and was held in high regard in the middle ages. Skinner family history includes poet Rev. John Skinner, author and actress Cornelia Otis Skinner, Lynyrd Skynrd namesake Leonard Skinner, and behaviorist and author B. F. Skinner.
