GLOVER Family History

This most interesting surname, of medieval English origin, was occupational. It described a maker or seller of gloves, deriving from the pre 7th century word "glof". Job-descriptive surnames originally denoted the actual occupation of the namebearer and only later became hereditary when a son followed his father into the same line of business. It is probable that that a glover may also have been a skilled engineer, in that in some cases it is known that he manufactured steel gauntlets to go with suits of armour.
