this interpertaton is only for the anglicised version. it is much older than that. it is actually Irish and comes from Duibhir which meant dark shirt. the name started out as a very powerful clan which held land in the tipperary area and fought the english as hard as they could. it needs to be remembered in its fullest history even as it adapted .
my grandmother was a Dyer and always said it is an Irish name so I was pleased to see your comment

My maiden name is Dyer and was born in Scotland. I would love to know of when it came to Scotland and we have the Dyer tartan,although a relatively new tartan but still does anyone know of it's Scottish origins.
I am Irish, and I thought that 'Dyer" was an anglicized version of the Irish 'Dwyer'. I like your explanation better, though.
I am told that our family is from England, and we now live in Canada with many other dyers.. it is suspected there is even a "dyer castle" somewhere in England
One branch of Irish Dyers came from Inistioge, Kilkenny. There are Dyers in the Book of Kilkenny going back to the 14th century. They are still there today. They emigrated to Logy Bay, Newfoundland where there are many Dyers.
