Baler is a name that was carried to England in the great wave of migration from Normandy following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Baler family lived in Lancashire. The name, however, is a reference to the family's former residence in Boulard, in Calvados, in Normandy.

Baler Early Origins



The surname Baler was first found in Lancashire. They were originally from Boulard in Calvados, Normandy, and arrived in England with Duke William of Normandy at the time of the Norman Conquest in 1066. One of the first records of the name was Baldwin de Boulers, who came to England in 1105 and was granted the Lordship of Montgomery, Powys by marriage to Sybil de Falaise. Hen Domen, (Welsh: "old mound") , a medieval timber motte-and-bailey castle in Powys, Wales was the home of the de Boulers (Bowdler) family and was founded by Baldwin de Boulers. Today, a permanent exhibition can be found on the site.

The Great Migration



In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Balers to arrive on North American shores:
