Origin of surname

The origins of Biard are French. It is a variant of bigard, meaning a little garden attached to a house, from the Latin bigardium. It indicates someone who lived in a house with a garden or even in the garden itself.

Early records

Jersey's original Biards arrived in the late 17th century, probably as Huguenot refugees from nearby Normandy, where variations of the name can be found in records dating back to the 13th century.
