The ancestors of the name Hollard date back to the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Hollard family lived in an enclosed region. The surname Hollard originally derived from the Old English word hough which referred to a small protected space.

Hollard Early Origins



The surname Hollard was first found in Lancashire at Thingwall, a detached hamlet, in the township of Little Woolton, parish of Childwall, union and hundred of West Derby. "Thyngwall was given in exchange by King John to an individual whose name is not now on record. In the following reign Richard, son of Thurston de Holland, held a carucate of land here 'of our lord the king,' for one mark, in exchange for his inheritance in Snodden (Smithden), 'which the king placed in his own forest.'"

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Hollard or a variant listed above:
