Top of the Day to ya. My maternal Great Grandmother's maiden name was Rebecca SAWYER/SAYER/SAYERS who was born and raised in Northern Ireland. It is typical to have different spellings as the informants to census etc typically spelled phonetically I know. But also due to the time period of mid to late 1800's its challenging to move beyond her husband John Breen and her 10 children. The familu lived in Cpunty Tyrone. I don't believe anyone immigrated from Ireland besides my grandmother, but it would be interesting to find other relations of Sayer/Sawyer to see if I can find more information a different way.
Hi, My grandmother was born HELENA SEGUIN, but her family settled in upstate NY around and in Watertown. Her father JOSEPH SEGUIN, Americanized the family by changing their name to SAYERS. They had several children who created their own spelling,.SAYRE, SAYER as well as SAYERS. No one kept the SEGUIN surname. They were from Quebec.
Hi I'm researching SAYER from Oxon & Berks.
I am also a SayerS - although hailing from Letterkenny, Donegal, Ireland. I have only gotten back to 1758 to my 5x great grandfather, William Sayers and his wife "Brickwall" Gillespie. Most of my Sayers ancestors ended up first in Ontario, Canada, slowly making their way into Michigan's west coast, from the Muskegon County area to Oceana and Mason County. At the moment, I have my gg grandmother's scrapbook in hand and culling a lot of family information over the past 100 years.
