"BYRES, BYERS, BUYERS. These names are derived from the old barony of Byres in East Lothian. John de Byres appears as a monk of Neubotle in 1309 (Wilkin, Concilia, p. 382). Thome de Byris owned a tenement in Edinburgh in 1392 (Egidii, p. 27), and in 1534 Thomas Byrs was admitted burgess of Aberdeen (NSCM., i, p. 53). George Byris and Thomas Byris were successively ministers of Legertwood in Berwickshire from 1593 to 1653. John Byres, an eminent merchant in Edinburgh, treasurer, dean of guild, and provost, died in 1639 (Stodart, n, p. 329). Andrew Byers appears as a burgess of Cupar in 1694, and Mr. Thomas Byers was schoolmaster at Melrose in 1690 (RRM., ra, p. 113). For centuries the barony was the property of the family of Lindsay and gave title to Lindsay of Byres. "(The surnames of Scotland. George Fraser Black, 1866-1948)
