| Eyre1 The surname Eyre evolved from Heyr, Eyr and these names without doubt came from a cadet line of the Blount family. But it must be said there is evidence also that more than one member was known by both names. Nicholas le Eyr who prepared a deed, witnessed by Blount family members, evidences this. Nicholas was defending his right to the settlement of inheritance from his brother Galfridus and his mother Alicia De Capella whose husband was William le Blount.
2 John le Eyr of Chesterfield Derbyshire by right of descent, claimed seisin of his lands at Urchfont Wiltshire and thus continued the le Eyr line, both counties had its origins from William Blount and his wife Alice De Capella.
