Early Origins of the Taylard family
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.

Migration of the Taylard family to the New World and Oceana
For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, 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.
