Channer is an Anglo-Saxon name. The name was originally given to a person who makes or deals in blankets. The surname Channer is derived from the Old English word chalouner, which in turn comes from chaloun, which means blanket.

Channer Early Origins



The surname Channer was first found in Hampshire where they held a family seat. From their early beginnings, for the next few centuries, the family name also acquired other estates or manors as branches established themselves throughout England. The major conflicts of the eras, such as the War of the Roses, the English Reformation, and the English Civil War sometimes found them to be in opposing camps, with conflicting interests.

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Channer arrived in North America very early:

Channer Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • Christopher J. Channer, who settled in South Carolina in 1831

Channer Settlers in United States in the 20th Century

  • Lewis Edward Channer, who came to Nebraska in 1918

Channer Settlers in Canada in the 19th Century

  • Fanny Channer, who settled in Ontario in 1871

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Nil desperandum
Motto Translation: Never despairing.
