Joiner History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English, German


The distinguished surname Joiner was first brought to England in the wake of the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name is derived from the Old French "engigneor" or "enginior," meaning "engineer, maker of military machines." During the 12th century, the term "ingeniator" was used to refer to men who worked as both master-mason and architect. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
