Dwyer Genealogy & History

Dwyer is an Irish surname from the Gaelic patronymic "O'Duibhuidhir", composed of "duibh", meaning dark or black, and "odhar", sallow or tawny. The Dwyer clan lived primarily in southern Ireland and resisted British rule for some time, spreading to Australia because of that. Dwyer family history begins with Denis Dwyre as a witness at St. Peter and St. Kevin in Dublin in 1677. Famous members of Dwyer genealogy include Marine Corps General Ross Dwyer, Irish journalist Michael Dwyer, and Pennsylvania Treasurer Bud Dwyer, who committed suicide on camera after serious allegations of malfeasance on his part arose.
