    1549 · Book of Common Prayer

    Book of Common Prayer, a product of the English Reformation, was published in 1549 for assistance in the administration of the sacraments and other rites and ceremonies of the church according to the use of the Church of England. The book outlined morning, evening, and communion prayers and orders for baptism and marriage, thus making England a truly Protestant state.

    Name Meaning

    English: occupational name from Middle English t(o)urnour, turner ‘turner’ (Old French to(u)rn(e)our), mainly denoting someone who fashioned small objects of wood, metal, or bone on a lathe, but also a variety of other occupations, including turnspit and translator or interpreter. This surname may have become confused with Toner . In North America, it is also very common among African Americans.

    English: occasionally perhaps a nickname from Middle English turn-hare, a compound of Middle English tournen ‘to turn, direct, steer’ + hare ‘hare’, a name for someone in charge of the greyhounds in hare coursing or an exaggerated compliment for someone who could run fast. See also Turnbull .

    English: perhaps also from Middle English t(o)urn(e)our ‘jouster, one who takes part in a tournament’ (Old French tornoieor, tournoieur).
