Much of the above Byerly information was extracted from The Byerlys of Carolina, Vol. III, by Wesley Grimes Byerly (1976).
Johann Jacob Beyerle appears to be from the Beyerle clan of the Sinsheim, Rhein Neckar Kreis.  Byerly is an anglicized derivation of the German names Beierle and Beyerle.  Both of these spellings appear to have originated in the northern Baden-Wuerttemberg area.  Johann Jacob Beyerle was naturalized in Lancaster Co., PA and in 1735 was in York Co., PA.  Other Beyerles arrived in 1730 and settled in Lancaster Co., PA.  They were from Sinsheim.
