What's in a name?

Hi all,

Today I was up in Skipton and came across one of those Heraldry stalls where they advertise "Your Surname History scroll printed in only 90 seconds."
I don't know about anyone else but I for one don't trust them and as a true Yorkshire man prefer to keep tightly hold of my 6.95 and hope to find information from more reliable sources.
I was wondering if anyone out there has actually managed to discover the origins of the Sayers surname. The only thing I have have been able to find is a statement in a book of surname meanings at my local library that it is derived from an old english name meaning 'sayer of words'. Unfortunately that's it ! Not much is it.
Can anyone else enlighten me further please.
