DEVER Family History

Recorded in many spellings which include De Vere, De Vauz, De Var, Devar, Dever, Vaux, Vere, Vear, Veare and Vears, this is a surname of Norman French origins. It is locational and was introduced into England at the famous Conquest of 1066, being one of the very few which can be proved with absolute certainty to have been at the battle of Hastings. Furthermore the nameholders served with such conspicuous distinction that they were granted large estates, mainly in East Anglia, some of whom they still hold after nine hundred years.
