Spelling variations of this family name include: Stennett, Stennet, Stennit, Stennitt, Stenett, Stenitt, Stenit and many more.

First found in Cambridgeshire where they held a family seat. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1560 when Nicholas Stennett held a family seat in that shire.
