Ord History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Ord family


The surname Ord was first found in Ord, a village about 2 miles (3 km) south west of Berwick Upon Tweed in Northumberland that dates back to 1196 where it was first listed as Horde. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)
East Ord, Middle Ord and West Ord were all hamlets at one time and all owned by the Ord family until the early fifteenth century. The villages are essentially on the Scottish-English border of today so the family's movement through the ages on both sides is to be expected. By example, we draw the reader's attention to the township of Newbiggin in Northumberland. "This place, which is pleasantly situated on the north bank of the river Derwent, was for many years the residence of the Ord family, of whom Robert, who died in 1778, was chief Baron of the exchequer in Scotland." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
