Carpenter Genealogy & History

Carpenter is an English surname that means "one who works with wood." It is one of the few surnames that still has the same spelling that it did in Middle English. The name was introduced to England around the time of the Norman Conquest, and is ultimately rooted in the late Latin "carpentum," a type of two-wheeled carriage or chariot. Because Carpenter is a surname based on a common occupation from the middle ages, Carpenter genealogy can include related names such as Wright and Wainwright (one who made wagons). Carpenter family history first appears in written history in 1121 at the Abbey of St. Edmund in Suffolk, England.
