Benner Family HistoryRecorded as Benn, Benner, Binn, Binne, Binor, Binner, Bynnor, and possibly others, this is an English medieval surname. It derives from the pre 7th Century word "binn", and has two possible interpretations. Firstly, it may be an occupational name for a maker of bins, used for the storage of corn, meal, and bread, as in the recording of Thomas Binere, of Colchester, in the county of Essex, in 1373. Occupation surnames were amongst the earliest to be recorded but did not become hereditary unless a son followed the father into the same line of business.
