Garner Genealogy & History

Garner is an English surname with three possible origins. Firstly, it could be an occupational or locational name for someone who lived near a barn or managed a granary, for which the Norman French word was "gerner". Secondly, it might be Old French, from the Germanic "war[in]" for guard, and "hari/heri", meaning army, carrying over into England as Warnier and Garnier. Lastly, it could be a simple contraction of the existing surname Gardner. Garner family history begins with the recording of Geoffrey Gerner in the "Feet of Fines of Essex" in 1272. Garner genealogy includes actress Jennifer Garner and former Vice President John Nance Garner.
