English: from Middle English peintour, painter, peintir, penter, pointour (Old French peintour, paintour) ‘painter of images (on walls, screens, shields, etc.), colorist (of statues, figurines, chests, etc.), artist’. In the Middle Ages the walls of both great and minor churches were covered with painted decorations, and Reaney and Wilson note that in 1308 Hugh le Peyntour and Peter the Pavier were employed ‘making and painting the pavement’ at Saint Stephen's Chapel, Westminster. The name is widespread in England.
