    Name Meaning

    English: status name, occupational name, or a nickname from Middle English squyer, squer, skier, sker, northern Middle English swire (Old French escuyer, escuier) ‘shield bearer, esquire, personal attendant to a knight; landowner below the rank of knight; young man of gentle birth; household attendant, retainer, page, messenger’. Many early bearers of this name were of modest means and cannot have been members of the gentry; in such cases the name may have been used hyperbolically for a low-ranking servant or as a nickname. By the 17th century, the term denoted any member of the landed gentry, but this is unlikely to have influenced the development of the surname.
