Descendancy of John Ayer

1 John Eyre/Ayer. A common spelling of the name in England was Eyre, and it was with the name of John Eyer
that the son of Robert and Cecely (Crosse) Eyer was baptized in Bromham parish on 28 March 1596. It is most
likely that this child was our John. He left Wiltshire, England, most likely in 1635 on the ship “James” and
came to Massachusetts. He was in Salisbury in 1640, and may have arrived there before 1637. He was in
Haverhill, Massachusetts in 1645 when he was counted as one of the landholders of the town. John died 31
March 1657, at Haverhill. 

John was married to Hannah, whose family name is often reported as Evered alias Webb, without any supporting evidence. The most likely connection to the Evered alias Webb family is through Rebecca Eyer, a sister of John Ayers. The Haverhill town records report the death of Hannah Ayer on 8 October 1688.
