The surname Biener may derive from (or have lent itself to) the town of Bienau in Silesia, also known as Bienowitz.

Biener Early Origins



The surname Biener was first found in Silesia, where the name is considered to have made an early contribution to the feudal society which became the backbone of early development in Europe. The name became prominent in local affairs and branched into many houses which played important roles in the tribal and national conflicts, each group seeking power and status in an ever-changing territorial profile.
