Background: Pinner is an old Anglo-Saxon name that was given to a person who worked as the Pinder which referred to a individual who impounded stray cattle. During the Middle Ages there was rampant theft of livestock, which made the Pinder a very important member of the community. Pinner could also be referenced to a pinmaker, peg or pin. Besides pins, the pinner also made wire articles, especially needles inserted into cards used in cloth dressing. The Pindar of Wakefield is the subject of one of Robin Hood ballads, "She doth not only think of lusty Robin Hood, but of his merry man, the Pindar of the Town of Walkfield."

Variations: Pinner, Pinneri, Pinnero, Pinnere, Pinneru, Painner, Pinnera, Pinnear, Piner, Pinneer, Pinneiro, Pynner, Pinard, Pineaux, Pinar, Penner, Pindar.
