The many generations and branches of the laneir family can all place the origins of their surname with the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name reveals that an early member worked as a person who worked as alanelier which was an Old French word denoting a maker of woollen cloth. The original bearers of this surname were those individuals who dressed, wove and sold wool. The lanelier would have had his own business premises so that he could have weavers make the wool into sellable garments.

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the laneir family emigrate to North America: Temperance Laner, who sailed to Virginia in 1652; and H. Laner, who journeyed to Colorado in 1885.
