SENIOR Family History

This interesting and long-established surname is an example of that sizeable group of early European surnames that were gradually created from the habitual use of nicknames.

The derivation, in this case, is from the Old French "seignour", Anglo-Norman French "segneur", ultimately from the Latin "senior", elder, and originally denoted an elder or chief, perhaps the lord of the manor, someone who behaved in a lordly manner, or perhaps acted the part of a lord in a local pageant...
