HAMNER Family History

This interesting surname being a locational name, is a dialectal variant of a place called Hanmer in the former county of Flints (now part of Clwyd), deriving from the Germanic personal name "Hagena", borrowed into the Olde English pre 7th Century, and "mere" meaning "lake" or "pond". Locational surnames, such as this, were usually acquired by a local landowner, or by the lord of the manor, and especially by those former inhabitants of a place who had moved to another area, usually in search of work, and were thereafter best identified by the name of their birthplace.
