Taillier is Taillefer, which comes from france. They went to England,essex and changed their name to Theier,Theyers,Theyer,Tayer,Teyer,Thier,Tawyer,Terry,Taylor and coming to the US Thayer as we know it today. As our family moved from Essex to the west, the first name stayed the same and the last name was changed,a few letters here and there. Most of the names, I have listed above have been connected. I have 81,600 names on my computer.
