Moyer Family HistoryAccording to the records of Ireland, this very interesting and rare surname, is of ancient Gaelic origins. It is recorded in that country in several spellings which include MacMoyer, McMoyer, Moyer, Moyers, and sometimes Moore. It would seem to originate from the pre 10th century 'Mac an Mhaoir' meaning the son of the mhair or steward. In those far off times 'steward' was a status description not for a domestic servant, but for somebody of serious and wide ranging responsibilities. This included the management of estates or in Scotland, - the whole country! Indeed the famous Stuart royal family of Scotland and later England from 1603 to 1714, derive their surname from being the hereditary stewards of Scotland.
