Origins of surname
A tanner was a tanner of animal skins, particularly leather. This was an important occupation in medieval times.
The surname first appeared in Jersey records in 1808, but there have been very few people of the name in the island, although in the 20th century there were Tanner the Butcher and Tanner's Bakery. We have not been able to link these families to any of their potential ancestors.
