Frank Merrill Tanner
What's up Family Tree :D I just wanted to globally say hello to my kin. I like to think outside of the box, speak my mind, dreaming, creating art, playing videogames, entertaining my friends, longboarding, thinking, living my best to please the world. Birth: Sacramento, CA Current: Philadelphia, PA
My Tanner heritage has been traced from new york to poland to ireland
Ty Nicole name and heritage means a lot stay Irish and stay tanner
I am sorry but Tanner is of old french and then English , it was never seen as an Irish name and there is no translation into Irish or gaelic , they came from English migrants and during wars between the Irish and English .
This is all very interesting indeed. I am one of the few remaining Irish Tanners. We have a family tree dating back to at least the 1600's.

Where did your family settle? I have traced our family from North Carolina, to Madison County, AL then to Tipton County, TN.
No such thing as an Irish Tanner as its a French name and not an Irish name .
John W Tanner
I have dated Tanner's back as far a 1080 in Belfast, and Derry 1120 in Dublin, and 1300 in Cork...so there were definatly Tanners from Ireland!!!!
Our Tanner family is supposed to be from Ireland. We are now mostly in Alabama and Tennessee
Tanner Nicole Jackson
my family is in South carolina and i have some in alabama :) my families last name is tanner but im the last in the line. there were no boys so i have to care on the name. so it is my first name and i am going to name one of my future kids with the middle name of tanner and explane the importance of keeping the name in the famile :)
There are NO Tanners that originate from Ireland , All Tanners that have ever been in Ireland came from England and France with Army's that were invading Ireland and those people settled here , Just because people find their name in some church records in Ireland it does not mean that that name is Irish in any way . there are over 165 nationalities in Ireland now so are we to say that all their surnames are now Irish because they show up in records ?
NO Tanners originate from Ireland they are French , this is a fact and i am a Historian who specializes in Irish history and names .
I have a Catherine Tanner b c 1855 to Jonathon Tanner & Frances Ross. She was born Desetserges.. There seem to be a number of Tanner families in the Bandon area but can't sort them out I think Jonathon maybe son of Henry Tanner. Wnder if you have any info on this line.

We have a letter passed down in the family to my Great Great Grandfather Christopher Johnathan Tanner from his mother in the Bandon area dated 1851. Mentions family members within the family.
YES there were Tanners in Ireland but they originate from England and France , there are no Tanners that originate purely from Ireland as they arrived only in the 1600's thru English Migration and wars .
The Tanners in Ireland are not from Ireland , they were immigrants from England and France before that ., theres no translation into Irish which should tell people that its not from here , are we to say that every person who spends a few years with a name in any country like India ( smith) that that name is then Indian ?
I'm surprise to see the origin of my last name being that I am black
S J Tanner
John, very interesting that you have dated Tanners so far back in Ireland. Is there any more information about the Belfast Tanners?
