Keer1083WorldwideNoThe Keer surname appears to originate in Suffolk and is thought to be a variant of the Scottish surname Kerr, altered by Suffolk pronunciation. Almost all Keers in Suffolk can be traced back to one of three men - John Keer (grover of Framlingham), Edward Keer (cheesemonger of Saxtead) and Samuel Keer (farmer of Cretingham). It is thought that these three men were the sons of Edward Keer.Keer
