An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The many generations and branches of the Mollard family can all place the origins of their surname with the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name reveals that an early member worked as a miller or the keeper of a mill. The surname Mollard is derived from the Old English word mylenweard. This name is common in the southern and western counties; elsewhere, the form Milner predominates.

Mollard Early Origins



The surname Mollard was first found in Derbyshire where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Mollard family emigrate to North America:
