Taylar Early Origins



The surname Taylar 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.

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 Taylar family emigrate to North America:
