The Allard One-Name Study

Main Feature

Welcome to the Allard one-name study website.
This study is registered with the Guild of One-Name Studies.
This is a relatively new study which at the moment is UK based. The intention is to extend the study to worldwide coverage.
I would love to hear from anyone with an interest in the Allard surname, and would welcome assistance in extending the coverage.
Any information supplied for inclusion in the site will, of course, be credited to the originator.

feature 2 Feedback and information received
Geraldine Rae has submitted the following information on her great grandfather Maurice William Allard (I447) (Allard 1891 UK census entries tree)
Additions to Maurice William Allard - wife Ada Elizabeth Henly (1874 - 1932). Married 4th Q 1893.
Children - Kathleen Mary Allard (1894 - 1954), Evelyn Rose Allard (1895 - 1969) and Annie Louisa Allard (1896 - 1956).
Kathleen married an Australian soldier after WW1 and migrated to Australia. Evelyn married an English man, had a daughter and then the three of them migrated to Australia. Annie married an Englishman and lived all her life in the UK.
The name has died out in Australia from this line, as all the children were girls.

feature 3 Allard references
Christina Brittain kindly supplied the following details about some interesting Allard references:

Gervase Alard was Admiral of The Fleet in 1295, and became Mayor of Winchelsea in 1306. It is thought the Stephen Alard who had paid for Gervase’s elaborate monument in Winchelsea, was his brother.

Many Allards settled in the former port of Winchelsea. In the parish church (St. Thomas a Becket) there are the famous Alard tombs. The tombs are of Gervais, (the mayor) who died in 1310; his son Stephen Alard who died 1327 or 1330. Another son of Gervais, Robert Alard is also mentioned, and a Reynaul Alard is buried there from 1354. These tombs are spectacular, and well worth a visit.

There was a Sibilia Alard, who was tax-payer, paying 10 shillings, in The Rape of Hastings in the year 1296. (From “British History Online” - Sussex Subsidy Roll of 1296)

feature 4 Canada Allards Update History
Canada Allards Tree latest 30 June 2017

This update includes a revamped set of media files. All the media links in the family file now work properly and most filenames now include a RIN for reference purposes. I have added a collection of individual snapshots as well, mostly taken from recent obit files. The update finalizes the 1880 US census entries that were not complete last time and it also includes the results of a few hundred obituaries found in Ontario & Quebec in the years 2016 and 2017. Work is progressing on earlier obits. - Ed Allard
