From: Een faniliehistorie. SPIERING. by J. A. Spiering, Amstelveen, 1999:

"Jan IV, fourteenth Lord of Heusden died in 1192. He had two sons with his wife Margaretha van Hoorn; Lord Robert van Heusden and Lord Wouter van Spierinck. This Wouter Spiering was the first to use Spiering as a last name and can be considered the progenitor of those that bore and bare the name."
