English
Nobility crown WernerEarly records reveal that this surname originated in England. A so-called "occupational" surname is one which is derived from a man´s trade; however, variations in pronunciation due to the natural process of evolution of the language or a regional dialect often lead to alterations of the original name, as in the case of Werner, which comes from the personal name "Warner", or Gardner.

Probably one of the first individuals bearing the surname Gardner to emigrate to America was a certain Thomas Gardner, who at age 44 sailed from England to Boston on a ship named "Harmony" in the year 1774. There are approximately 64,000 people living in the United States today who have this surname. ...
