Ballard Genealogy & History

Ballard is a descriptive ancient English name, widely considered to be derived from Middle English "ball" (spot) and Anglo-Saxon "-ard" (perhaps head), thus meaning bald-headed. However, other derivations have been hypothesized: Gaelic "ballart", meaning "boasting"; "bal-ared" meaning "lord and high"; and French "arbeille" (bee), indicating an occupation of bee-keeper. Variations on the name include Balard, Ballird, Bellyard, Belhyrd, Belward, and Billyard. Ballard family history includes a family seat at Yorkshire from ancient times, prior to the Norman Conquest in 1066, and Northamptonshire, where the first official record is found in 1196. American Ballard genealogy originates in New England in the 1630s.
