Turner Family History

Meaning of surname: Turner

Turner is a common surname originating from Normandy, and arriving in England after the Norman conquest with the earliest known records dated in the 12th century. The origin of the name comes from Old French "Le" meaning "The" and "etourneau" meaning "starling", thus giving us LeTourneau (pronounced le turner). Over time the "Le" or "L'" was dropped and in nearly all cases the spelling of the remaining tourneau became Anglicised. Turner is the 28th-most common surname in the United Kingdom.[1][2]
