Sumner Genealogy & History

Sumner is an English occupational surname, from the Middle English sumner or sumnor, in turn ultimately from the Latin verb submonere, to warn discreetly, through the agentive noun submonitor and Old French sumoneor. The sumner was charged with insuring that witnesses appeared in court when called to do so. Sumner family history begins in 1199, when Robert le Sumonur was added to the King's Court Rolls of Leicestershire. Sumner genealogy includes Union General Edwin �Bull� Sumner, Revolutionary General Jethro Sumner, and Massachusetts Senator Charles Sumner, who was caned for anti-slavery speeches on the floor of the Senate and hospitalized for months from his injuries.
