Tanner Genealogy & History

Tanner is an English and German name, coined from the occupation of tanner. In medieval times, the tanner possessed vital skills; leather was important for everyday shoes and saddles but also for military armour and quivers. Tanner is derived from the Old English "tannere", from the Late Latin "tannarius", relating to Old High German "tanna", meaning oak or fir (whose bark was used in the tanning process), with Danner being the German version of the name. Tanner family history includes at least nine coats of arms and a feudal manor in Devonshire. American Tanner genealogy predates the Mayflower; Daniel Tanner settled in Virginia in 1618.
