RAYNER Family History

This long-established surname is of early medieval English origin, and derives from the Old Norman French male given name "Rainer" or "Re(i)ner", itself coming from the Old German "Raginhari", a compound of the elements "ragin", counsel, and "hari", army. This name was introduced into England by the Normans after the Conquest of 1066, and occurs in its Latinized form "Rainerus" in the Domesday Book of 1086. One, Reynerus cancellarius was noted in the Register of St. Benet of Holme, Norfolk, dated 1101, and a Ricardus filius (son of) Rainer in the 1148 Winton Rolls of Hampshire.
