Origins of surname
This is a name which is prevalent in the west of France. It is ultimately derived from the Germanic personal name 'Maginhard', meaning 'strong force', via the old French 'Mainard'
The family which established in Jersey in the early 19th century following the marriage in 1810 of Francois Richard Menard (1781-1849) and Marguerite Fougere, of St Brelade, undoubtedly has its origins in Normandy.
