The name Henner is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived in the parish of Heene, which is now part of Worthing in the county of Sussex. The surname Henner belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. The surname Henner may also be derived from the personal name Henry.
