Peers Family References
References to the PEERS family of Cheshire and Lancashire
This is NOT all my own work - it is a compilation of references to the surname  PEERS that began in 1996 in the Peers Newsletter sent out by Brain Balderson of Manchester. Below is a listing of all the "lists" originally circulated with the Newsletter and I have tried to credit the original compilers where possible.
It is my hope that we can add to these to help Peers researchers all over.

If anyone has any Peers references that they may like to add to this collection, please email me. Or if you want me to lookup any of these for you before I have uploaded them, please ask. Thanks!
