Families covered: Ievers of Castle Ievers, Ievers of co. Clare, Ievers of Limerick

BIFR1976 reports that "This family is possibly descended from the Eures of Eureham. The progenitor with whom we begin (who used the arms of Eure) may have changed his surname to "Ievers" to make it clear that he did not associate with mems of the Eure family with whose loyalties he did not agree (e.g. Isaac Eure was one of the Judges at (the) trial of King Charles I) and, moreover, because the name of the village from which the family took its name, Eureham, had been changed to Iver."
