Early Origins of the Tayllard family
The surname Tayllard 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.

Migration of the Tayllard family to the New World and Oceana
Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England
. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England
, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations.
