Origins Available: English, French


The Gallarte family was an integral part of Britain's Norman legacy, a legacy that began in 1066 with the Conquest of the island. Gallarte was a name given to a happy, joyous, and bold person. The name Gallarte derives from the nickname the galliard, which means the bold or the joyous.

Gallarte Early Origins



The surname Gallarte was first found in county Devon where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Gallarte Spelling Variations



Anglo-Norman names are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. When the Normans became the ruling people of England in the 11th century, they introduced a new language into a society where the main languages of Old and later Middle English had no definite spelling rules. These languages were more often spoken than written, so they blended freely with one another. Contributing to this mixing of tongues was the fact that medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, ensuring that a person's name would appear differently in nearly every document in which it was recorded. The name has been spelled Gaylord, Gaillard, Galliard, Gaylor, Gayleard and others.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that plagued their homeland made the frontiers of the New World an attractive prospect. Thousands migrated, aboard cramped disease-ridden ships. They arrived sick, poor, and hungry, but were welcomed in many cases with far greater opportunity than at home in England. Many of these hardy settlers went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Among early immigrants bearing the name Gallarte or a variant listed above were: John Gaylord who settled in Nantasket in 1630; William Gaylord settled there the same year.
