FLANNER Family HistoryThis early occupational and mainly 'midlands' English surname, is actually of pre medieval French origins. Introduced into England at the time of the famous Norman Conquest of 1066, it derives from the French word 'flaonet,' meaning a 'little flan', and described a maker of patisserie or pancakes. The surname is recorded in France today, but as Flaneau, Flanneau, Flanet, although originally as Flanoel and Flaonet. Occupational surnames were amongst the first to be created in the 11th century, but did not usually become hereditary unless a son or a grandson followed the founder into the same line of business.
