Surname Scroll The original derivation is from the French Vignour, Vigneur or Vigneor, and both the occupation and the surname have long held aristocratic associations, an example being Sir Thomas Viner (1588 - 1665), Lord Mayor of London in 1653 during the Commonwealth Administration of Oliver Cromwell. Sir Thomas was one of the group which arranged the return of Charles 11 in 1660, his nephew and partner Sir Robert Viner being Lord Mayor of London in 1674.
