The Eyre family played a prominent role in the early days of what would become Atherton, and beyond, according to the Atherton history book "Under the Oaks" by Pamela Gullard and Nancy Lund.

In this undated photo from the Atherton Heritage Collection, Mary Tuft Eyre and Colonel Edward E. Eyre, who settled in the Fair Oaks neighborhood in the 1870s, are shown with family members behind them: from left, Perry Eyre, Nina Macondray, Charles Baldwin, Belle Eyre Pinckard, Edward Lilburn Eyre, Linie Ashe McClaren, Margaret Eyre Girvin, Florence Atherton Eyre, George Pinckard and Robert Eyre.

Edward L. Eyre, whose wife Florence was the youngest daughter of Faxon and Dominga Atherton, in 1923 became the first mayor of the newly incorporated Atherton.
