This site was originally started by Dan Eyre in July 1998 with the aim of creating the definitive site for those researching the Eyre surname anywhere in the world. He handed the site over to me (Rob Eyre) in January 2003.

The information presented on this site represents many years worth of research donated by many researchers across the globe. It is hoped that fellow researchers will continue to add their own branches to this Eyre Family History / Genealogy project.
