The name Liner is Anglo-Saxon in origin. It was a name given to a person who worked as alanelier which was an Old French word denoting a maker of woollen cloth. The original bearers of this surname were those individuals who dressed, wove and sold wool. The lanelier would have had his own business premises so that he could have weavers make the wool into sellable garments.

Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Liner include Laner, Lanyer, Layner, Leyner, Laneir and others.

First found in Huntingdonshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Liner were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:
