Hi Bette

To give you a short story on and where the Jewers name started from:the first spelling which was a Saxon name from the year 1052 and name was Jeur. It has been changed over the years as you know, Jeur, Jeurs, Jewer, Jewers, Gower, Gowers and Dewar which is Scothish with 21 more versions to name a few. Most Jewers came from England, which has the largest family group to Nova Scotia as beening second largest family which stared back in 1778-9. They moved to the northeast states, Maine and Mass and some parts of Canada.
