Weir Genealogy & History

Weir comes from the Old Norse word ver, meaning fishing station, and later the Old English word wer, meaning weir or fish-trap. It may also refer to someone who lived near or on the Weir River in northern England. Alternate spellings are Wyer, Wyer, Weyer, Wyers, Vere, and Ver. Weir family history finds the first record of the name with Radulphus de Ver, who was taken prisoner in Alnwick, Scotland, between 1165 and 1214; later we find John de la Were in the 1273 Hundred Rolls of Oxford. John Wyer sailed to New Orleans in 1820. Weir genealogy includes three-time US figure skating champion Johnny Weir.
