The ancient name of Mullard finds its origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It comes from a name for a miller or the keeper of a mill. The surname Mullard is derived from the Old English word mylenweard. This name is common in the southern and western counties; elsewhere, the form Milner predominates.

Mullard Early Origins



The surname Mullard 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.

Mullard Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Mullard family name include Milward, Milwood and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Mullard surname or a spelling variation of the name include :
