The surname Turner is found primarily in England.  It is classified as being of occupational origin, depicting the original bearer's trade or profession while the design reflects their hopes, ambitions and aspirations. The surname Turner in Ireland was brought to the country by settlers from both England and Scotland as early as the 15th Century.  Ulster was the main settlement point. 
Earliest references to the family name Turner are in Oxfordshire, England.  Although of Norman origin they appear to have held lands and estates in England and were actively allied with other influential families.  After branching out into other territories and holdings they voyaged to the new world.  Two of the first settlers  in the "New World" were William Turner who arrived in Maine in 1607 thirteen years before the "Mayflower" and Abraham Turner who arrived in Plymouth, MA in 1620.
