Origin of Surname

Le Liard means iron grey, suggesting that hair colour was a factor in the origination of this family name. It is also possible that it came from the old French liart for joyous

Early records

It is an extremely old Jersey surname, appearing in the Short Inquisition of 1274. However, the family appears to have died out because there are no church records prior to 1842. Jean-Francois Le Liard, born in Plaintel, Brittany in 1874 arrived in Jersey with his wife Anne-Marie Morcel, born in Le Foeil, Brittany in 1873, some time before 1894.

They settled and had 14 children, all baptised in St Saviour between 1894 and 1909.

Liard is the common form of the name in Normandy today, and can be traced back to the 14th century.
