Special thanks to George Edgar Drake for compiling much of the information in the later generations of this annex.

 

Origin of the surname “Gardner:”

 

Gardner derived from two Gaelic words: “gair,” which means outcry or alarm; and “din,” which means hill or fortress.  Thus Gardner means dweller in a fortified place or hill.

 

The earliest Gardners were English.  In 1624 Thomas Gardner came to America as a member of the Dorchester Company.  He was chosen as leader in the company’s pioneer enterprises and continued to be prominent in its activities until his death in 1635.  He eventually settled at Salem, Massachusetts.
