Louer History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Louer family

The surname Louer was first found in Cornwall where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of St.Tudy.

"The manor of Trelaske [in the parish of Lewannick, Cornwall] belonged to the Upton family prior to the Reformation ; but in the reign of Henry VIII. it was carried by co-heiresses to two brothers of the Lower family. Thomas Lower, Esq. who died in 1703, sold his moiety of the manor and the barton connected with it, to John Addis, Esq." [1]

"On the barton of Botonet [in the parish of Lezant, Cornwall] was formerly a seat of the Lowers, by whom it was inhabited in the days of Norden; but since that time the old mansion has been demolished." [1]
