Re: Origin of Eager

In Reply to: Origin of Eager by Tammy Eager of 374

From some of the work I have done and through contacts with other family members in Ireland, Canada, and England the Eager name comes also from the name Agar. Originally the Eager clan was part of the army of William the Conqoruer of Normandy. The land we have in Ireland was given to one of our ancestors as well as the coat of arms from which I understand is to handed down to all family members because of his service to the King of England. I have papers of some of this as well as a copy of the book on the Eager Family in County Kerry from Alexander to about 1958. My line came to the states in the mid to late 1700's.
