Hi Graham , I recently gained access to a lot of research documents relating to SAYER etc in many parts of UK but predominantly in Yorkshire . Amongst these is an account of the meaning of the name . also quite a bit on the Coat of Arms . I need to look these up and check what is involved after which I will get in touch . Let me know if you get the required info in the meantime . Do you have an interest in SAYER(S) genealogy ? I have quite a lot of info from 1350 onwards ...much in North Yorkshire but inevitably branching out into several other areas .
