Re your message
I have just found this name - MOYERS in my tree - can anyone shed any
the meaning or it's origins. I have found Elizabeth MOYERS
Wainwright about 1843 in St. Helens,
I thought that it may have been an occupation related surname such as
Weaver, but I cannot find Moyer as an occupation.
It may be worth seeing if your local public library has a copy of a book
called "A Dictionary of Surnames" by P. Reaney.
This gives the origin of lots of names, I really should buy myself a copy!!
Hope this helps.
