Haire Family HistoryThis interesting name is of Norman-French and early medieval English origin, and is one of the variant forms of the more familiar name Ayer, which is a "nickname" surname for a man who was well known to be the heir to a title or a fortune. The name derives from the Middle English "eir, eyr", heir, itself from the Old French "eir, heir", from the Latin "heres", heir. Occasionally, the surname may derive from a personal name, as in Robertus filius Aier (1166, London). The development of the surname includes: Ralph le Eir (1208, Essex); Richard le Heyer (1274, Gloucestershire); Henry le Eyer (1275, Oxfordshire); and Robert le Heir (1287, ibid.).
