Where did the English Bannon family come from? What is the English Bannon family crest and coat of arms? When did the Bannon family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Bannon family history?The Anglo-Saxons of Britain first developed the name Bannon. It was a name given to someone who was a person who was a slayer of men in battle. The name means warrior or solider.
Spelling variations in names were a common occurrence before English spelling was standardized a few hundred years ago. In the Middle Ages, even the literate spelled their names differently as the English language incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other European languages. Many variations of the name Bannon have been found, including Banning, Baning, Bannin and others.
First found in London, where they held a family seat from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest in 1066.
