I can trace a number of Devers family in Europe and of course US, in particular in Ireland, the UK, the Netherlands, Belgium and France. I tend to think that those family (except for the Anglo-Saxon world) are not necessarily related but at the same time I am surprised that "Devers" may sound local in so many different languages. Any body having an idea as to the orgin/Meaning of the family name and where it does come from originally? For instance, has it any meaning in Old English or Gaelic? (as there are traces dating back to the 15th century in Ireland).
