Spears Genealogy & History

Spears is a Scottish surname, originating in feudal times in Renfrewshire where there was a Spears family seat. Derived from Olde English "spere", which means spear, the name could be occupational or descriptive: it could have been the name for a hunter or maker of spears, or it could have referred to a tall, skinny person. In Spears genealogy, name variations include Speer, Speir, Spere, Spier, Spire, Speery, Speyer and the patronymic "s" endings meaning "son of." American Spears family history began in Virginia in 1653. The Spears family motto is "advance", and not surprisingly, the crest and coat of arms contain spears, symbolizing knightly service.
