LEAR Family HistoryRecorded as Lear, Leyre, Leare, and Leere and others, this is an early English surname. It is locational from a place in the county of Leicestershire called Leire. Recorded in the famous Domesday Book of 1086, and in the Episcopal Registers of that county in 1227, it derives from the word 'legra', an Olde British river name whose meaning is obscure. The surname is medieval and amongst the earliest recorded in the latter half of the13th century (see below). These early recordings include examples such as William de Leyre in the registers of the city of London in 1292.
