Origin of Surname
Malzard was the name for the round pot in which cider was set among the embers. It suggests to the Rev George Balleine that the original holder of the surname may have been somewhat tubby.
However, this is a common English surname, derived from Kirkby Malzeard, a village in Yorkshire to the west of the small city of Ripon. The place name means 'The church belonging to Malzeard', a reference it is thought to a Norman-French family, probably from Mallissard, a village in Northern France, who held lands in the area in the 12th century.
There are only a handful of Malzards in France today, predominantly in Manche in Normandy, and Ile-et-Vilaine, which is the adjoining Brittany Department.
The name is found in the Assize Roll of 1309, so has been established in Jersey for at least 700 years, probably a century longer.
