CARTNER Family HistoryThis unusual surname is of Old German origin, and is an occupational name for a cultivator of edible produce in an orchard or kitchen garden, deriving from the Middle High German "gartenaere, gertner", from "gard", enclosure, with the addition of the agent suffix "er(e)". In its original sense "a man who has to do with", the "er(e)" designates persons according to their profession or occupation. In medieval times the function of the "gertner" was an important one, as he was responsible for cultivating produce for the market; the modern application of "gardener" referring to one who tends ornamental lawns and flower beds was much later.
