Eyre Genealogy compiled by Barclay Eyre 1921


Preston Eyre married Macre Pickering (1840) and they started their married life in Juniata County, central Pennsylvania, but soon returned to Bucks, where he taught the Middletown Friends'

School, in Attleboro, for a time.

In the spring of 1844 they removed to a farm in Upper Makefield, which he afterward bought and named the place "Fairview". On this farm the balance of his life was spent. They had six children.

"Uncle Preston"s" was for many years a favorite resort for relatives and friends. The excursions to the rive in the old farm wagon for a supply of watermelons from the island, a bathe in the

Delaware, or a boat ride upon its rippling waters, were "scenes of our childhood" not easily forgotten.
