Granger is a surname of English and French origin. It is an occupational name for a farm bailiff.[1] The farm bailiff oversaw the collection of rent and taxes from the barns and storehouses of the lord of the manor.[1] This officer's Anglo-Norman title was grainger, and Old French grangier, which are both derived from the Late Latin granicarius (a a derivative of granica, meaning "granary").[1]
