  • Baron Eure was the title granted to Sir William Eure by Henry VIII in 1544. The Baron was thereafter called 'Lord Eure.' The title became extinct with the death of Ralph Eure in 1690. The family name is also spelt Evres, Ewer,[1] and Evers.[2][3]
  • Sir William Eure was created Lord Eure, by letters patent, on 24 February 1544 during the reign of Henry VIII.[4][5] He was succeeded by his grandson, William, 2nd Lord Eure (son of Ralph, heir of the 1st Baron, who was killed at the battle of Ancrum Moor), who died 1570 during the reign of Elizabeth I,[6][7] leaving his son, Ralph, 3rd Lord Eure, father of William, 4th Lord Eure, who was succeeded by his grandson, William, 5th Lord Eure (son of Ralph), who was succeeded by his uncle, William, 6th Lord Eure, slain at the battle of Marston-Moor, 1645, leaving only daughters. The honour then devolved on George, great grandson of the 2nd Peer (viz. son of Horace, son of 'Sir Francis, second son of the said Peer.') This George thus becoming 7th Lord Eure, died unmarried 1672. He was succeeded by his brother, Ralph, 8th Lord Eure; on whose death without issue, the honour became extinct.[8]
