SPOONER Family History

Recorded in the spellings of Sponer, Spooner and Spuner, this is an English surname. It is job descriptive, and derives from pre 8th century word "spon" which means a curved wooden roof tile or shingle, and hence the surname describes a maker, fitter, or merchant of these early building products. Curiously it would seem that the surname has nothing to do with the making of curved eating utensils, although the origin lies with the word "spon". Spoons, at least in Britain, were rarely if ever used before the 15th century, and are later than the surname itself.
