An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The Saner family was an integral part of Britain's Norman legacy, a legacy that began in 1066 with the Conquest of the island. Saner was a name given to a person with lordly bearing, or the older of two people with the same name. The first is by analogy with the French seigneur, meaning lord.

Saner Early Origins



The surname Saner was first found in Norfolk, where the family was granted lands by William the Conqueror for having assisted at the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The earliest known bearer of the name was Walter Seignure, who was recorded in the Pipe Rolls of Norfolk in 1164.

Saner Spelling Variations



Anglo-Norman names are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. When the Normans became the ruling people of England in the 11th century, they introduced a new language into a society where the main languages of Old and later Middle English had no definite spelling rules. These languages were more often spoken than written, so they blended freely with one another. Contributing to this mixing of tongues was the fact that medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, ensuring that a person's name would appear differently in nearly every document in which it was recorded. The name has been spelled Senior, Sinyeard, Singard, Sinyard, Sinor, Sayner, Saynor, Sayner and many more.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that plagued their homeland made the frontiers of the New World an attractive prospect. Thousands migrated, aboard cramped disease-ridden ships. They arrived sick, poor, and hungry, but were welcomed in many cases with far greater opportunity than at home in England. Many of these hardy settlers went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Among early immigrants bearing the name Saner or a variant listed above were:

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: Medio tutissimus ibis
