Early Origins of the Traynor family


The surname Traynor was first found in Durham where the family name was first referenced in the year 1243 when Robert Treiner held in Durham. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Reaney, P.H and R.M. Wilson, A Dictionary of English Surnames. London: Routledge, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-415-05737-X)
Years later, Robertus Trainer was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379 and Yorkshire is arguably the first stronghold of the family. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Bardsley, C.W, A Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames: With Special American Instances. Wiltshire: Heraldry Today, 1901. Print. (ISBN 0-900455-44-6)

There are two distinct theories as to the etymology of the surname: "from an occupation. 'the trainer,' probably of horses," [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Bardsley, C.W, A Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames: With Special American Instances. Wiltshire: Heraldry Today, 1901. Print. (ISBN 0-900455-44-6)
and from the Middle English "tryane, 'to lay or train or snare, to set a trap', a trapper." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Reaney, P.H and R.M. Wilson, A Dictionary of English Surnames. London: Routledge, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-415-05737-X)
Either way, the name was an occupational surname.
