It is not uncommon to find the surname Tennant also spelled as Tenant and Tennent.
In 1296, there is record of a William tenant of Crestone of county Linlescu, and he pledged allegiance to Edward I of England by signing the Ragman Roll, along with many other Scottish nobles. His seal bears a large dog and his name S’ Will’i Tenavnt.
An inquiry concerning the Knights Templar in 1309 saw Thomas Tenaunt as a witness.
