Lepird Early Origins



The surname Lepird was first found in Sussex where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066.

Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Lepird were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: the name represented in many forms and recorded from the mid 17th century in the great migration from Europe.
