Always thought, and had been told, that the name came from when Elizabeth employed men to 'spie' for ships that were coming to invade britain, hence why we begame known as Spiers. They were the men who lit the becons to warn of the Armarda, etc. Would tie into our heraldry of ship with three coins, the coins being the money received to do the job.
