Joiner Family HistoryThis interesting surname is of Old French origin, and is from an occupational name for a maker of wooden furniture, derived from the Anglo-Norman French "joignour", from the Old French "joigneor", itself from "joinre", to join, connect, originally from the Latin "iungere". As an occupative term joiner probably came into use somewhat later than carpenter. Job descriptive surnames originally denoted the actual occupation of the namebearer and later became hereditary. The medieval "Cocke Lorelle's Bote" mentions "Carpenters, coupers, and joyners".
