Baier History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms 

Early Origins of the Baier family

The surname Baier was first found in Lower Austria and Tyrol, where the name contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation, which would later play a large role in the tribal and national conflicts of the area. In later years the name branched into many houses, each playing a significant role in local social and political affairs.
