Byers families in Ireland

Welcome to this genealogical resource for anyone researching the family name BYERS, particularly with a connection to Ireland and the province of Ulster.

The website focuses on BYERS families in Co. CAVAN, but is being expanded to include Byers families in Co. DOWN and elsewhere in Ireland - and perhaps key places in the Byers diaspora.
Please navigate through the pages listed in the far left-hand column.

Some sources and listings cover several centuries.

These include Byers graves in Co. Down, listed under 18th century sources, and also the separate listing for Co. Cavan Church Records.


Please note that
Byers was spelled in various ways over the years, including Byars, Biars and Byres. 

The most recent generation has been omitted on this website, lest there be an invasion of privacy.
