Sawyer Genealogy & History

Sawyer is an English occupational surname, from the Old English sagu and Middle English saghe, both meaning someone who saws wood; it seems to modern readers like an undistinguished profession, but wood was an incredibly vital medieval resource, much like oil is today. Sawyer family history starts with Nicholas de Sagyere, enrolled in the Records of the Abbey of Bec in Berkshire. Notable members of Sawyer genealogy include 1990s Liberian President Amos Sawyer, father and son British Admirals Herbert Sawyer Sr. and Jr., and former two-term Nevada Governor Grant Sawyer, defeated in an attempt for a third term by his own lieutenant governor.
