Origin of the name TURNER Back

Origin

TAYLOR : A name of trade. We find this name modified to Tayleure, the orthography having been changed by the bearers to hide what they thought the lowness of its origin. So Smith is changed to Smyth, Turner to Turnour, etc as Camden says, Mollified ridiculously lest their bearers should seem villified by them. View the TURNER results.
