JENNER Family History

This famous surname is of Norman French origins, and was introduced into Britain after the 1066 Invasion. Originally recorded chiefly in the English south east counties of Suffolk and Kent, it was a medieval occupational name for a designer or engineer, the word descending from the pre 10th century Olde French "engineor", a derivative of "engaigne", meaning cunning or ingenious. The word was first used in England to describe civil engineers, who combined the duties and skills of master mason and architect, although the original meaning in the Roman period some thousand years earlier was the designing and building of the famous military seige engines and the like.
