Originaria della Schiavonia, si spense nel 1302 nella persona di Messer Tomado Senier avvocato dei procuratori. Molte famiglie che dimoravano in Venezia appartenevano alla nobiltà. Nel Libro d’Oro della nobiltà veneta e ne il Patriziato Veneto dopo la guerra di Candia e la Serrata del Maggior Consiglio del 1646, eventi questi che lasciarono fama immortale pel grande senno politico e virtù cittadine, troviamo illustre questa famiglia. Sulla scorta di antiche cronache esistenti nella Biblioteca Marciana, e nel R. Archivio di Stato finora inedite; e contrariamente a quanto pubblicò il Freschot nella sua Nobiltà Veneta, le opere sumenzionate sono imparziali riguardo all’origine di talune famiglie, assunte al patriziato veneto. La medesima famiglia fù elevata alla nobiltà per ottimi servigi resi alla patria, o per offerte fatte alla Repubblica per il che vennero ascritti alla veneta nobiltà.. Riguardo a questo cognome abbiamo ritrovato ulteriori informazioni storiche in altri archivi. Purtroppo in lingua originale Inglese. : This Last Name SENIER was a nickname ‘the older of two persons’. The mode of expression was used as early as the 13th century. The name was primarily extrapolated from the Old French ‘seignour’ and was brought into England in the wake of the Norman Invasion of 1066. Many of the early names recorded in medieval documents denote noble families but many also indicate migration from the continent during, and in the wake of, the Norman invasion of 1066. There was a constant stream of merchants, workmen and others arriving in England during this time. In 1086 the Record of Great Inquisition of lands of England, their extent, value, ownership and liabilities was made by order of William The Conqueror. It is known as the Domesday book.
