Early Origins of the Gayer family


The surname Gayer was first found in Belgium, where the name became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. The name was first recorded in Hainault, a province in Belgium, based on the ancient county of Hainaut. Within this province the notable towns are Mons, the capital city, Charleroi, Tournai, Soignies and Thuin.
