ABOUT US

The name Fenner can be traced back to a tribe of Celts that migrated to Southern England and the surrounding areas as early as 500 B.C. The Celts, originally from Austria, began to spread throughout Europe under pressure and invasion from the Romans. The Celtic tribes that survived settled in present-day Northern France, Southern England, Ireland and Scotland. Three of those tribes, the Scots, the Picts, and the Fens, migrated to Britain.
