Name Meaning

English: occupational name from Middle English storour, storer, a derivative either of Old French and Middle English store ‘store(s), stock, provisions, livestock’ or of Middle English store ‘kind of cloth’. Without contextual evidence, it is impossible to know which senses applied to individual surnames. For example, Joh's Storur de Lenton (1379) was a linen draper, but other men with this name may have been in charge of provisions in a great house or monastery, stewards who collected rents, or humble herdsmen.English: sometimes perhaps a post-medieval pronunciation of Storey . The two names (see 1 above) may have been confused.South German: from a Bavarian dialect word, störer, denoting an unskilled workman, i.e. a craftsman who was not a member of a guild.
