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


The Mylord name was coined by the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. Mylord was originally a name given to someone who worked as a miller or the keeper of a mill. The surname Mylord is derived from the Old English word mylenweard. This name is common in the southern and western counties; elsewhere, the form Milner predominates.

Mylord Early Origins



The surname Mylord 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



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. 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 Mylord or a variant listed above: Henry Milward, who arrived in Virginia in 1622 with his wife, child, and sister; David and James Milward settled in Boston in 1652; Thomas Milward settled in New England in 1630.
