The surname Bannon was first found in London, where they held a family seat from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest in 1066.

Spelling variations in names were a common occurrence before English spelling was standardized a few hundred years ago.

Many variations of the name Bannon have been found, including Banning, Baning, Bannin and others.
