Baron Eure was a title in the Peerage of England. It was granted to Sir William Eure by Henry VIII in 1544. The Baron was thereafter called Lord Eure. The title became extinct with the death of Ralph Eure in 1690. The family name is also spelt Evres, Ewer, and Evers.
Sir William Eure was created Lord Eure, by letters patent, on 24 February 1544 during the reign of Henry VIII. He was succeeded by his grandson, William, 2nd Lord Eure (son of Ralph, heir of the 1st Baron, who was killed at the battle of Ancrum Moor), who died 1570 during the reign of Elizabeth I, leaving his son, Ralph, 3rd Lord Eure, father of William, 4th Lord Eure, who was succeeded by his grandson, William, 5th Lord Eure (son of Ralph), who was succeeded by his uncle, William, 6th Lord Eure, slain at the battle of Marston-Moor, 1645, leaving only daughters. The honour then devolved on George, great grandson of the 2nd Peer (viz. son of Horace, son of Sir Francis, second son of the said Peer.) This George thus becoming 7th Lord Eure, died unmarried 1672. He was succeeded by his brother, Ralph, 8th Lord Eure; on whose death without issue, the honour became extinct.
Arthur Collins in 1812 briefly described the baronage with eight barons, as did John Preston Neale in 1823 and John Burke in 1831, however The Gentleman's Magazine, for August 1817, includes two not three Williams between Ralph Eure and George Eure which makes George the 6th Baron Eure not the 7th as in Collins, and some other sources also state that George and Ralf (the last Baron Eure), were the 6th and 7th barons.

- "It has been variously spelt, for besides Eure, we find Evre, Ever, Evere, Evers, Evars, Ivers, Ewer, Ewre, Ewry, Eury, Eurye, Ewrye, and, in the Roll of Arms temp. Edw. II., Oevre (which may be a transcriber's error); but the general pronunciation of it is believed to have been Eure; so at least it has been pronounced by the descendants of the family as far back as memory extends." (Walford p. 221).
