Origins of surname

The name is French in origin. The variant Guillard is found in Normandy, and is said to mean 'son of Guillaume', although another source says that it is derived from the Germanic personal name Willihard, meaning 'strong willed'.

Early records

The head of the family tree listed below, or his son, came to Jersey from Guernsey. The family has used both spellings from time to time. The owner of an online tree currently uses the spelling Guillard, whereas her father used Guilliard.

Variants

Variants found in different parts of France, the second specifically in Brittany.

  • Guillart
  • Guilhard

Although there are suggstions that all these names are variants of each other, we believe that Guilliard and Guillard, which can be found in records covering the same generation of one family in Jersey, should be treated separately from the other two, for which we have created a distinct family page.
