Tailord Early Origins



The surname Tailord was first found in Huntingdonshire, a district in Cambridgeshire. The earliest record on the name was Sir Lawrence Taylard, who was listed as being buried at Doddington. His birth date was December 25th 1498, he was presumed to have died in 1573. One of the early arms shows that the family was listed as Knights of the Shire, Lords of the Manor of Diddington, in the honour of Huntingdon. However, there seems to be some disagreement on the spelling of the surname as later records show a descendant claiming the name was spelt as Tayler. Today such disagreements of their surname seem whimsical, but one must remember that at this time in history spelling was not an exact, but personal. The Taylards has a close relationship with the Chapell family. Evidence can still be seen today in a brass rubbing in the Church of St Lawrence, Diddington where a "surcoat" from one of the bearers clearly shows the two families united. Both families were heavily involved in the Church.

As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages, even literate people changed the spelling of their names. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. 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 Tailord or a variant listed above: William Taylard, who settled in Maryland in 1680; and James Taylar, who arrived in New York, NY in 1867.
