Howard Genealogy & History

Howard is an English name with murky origins. It could be derived from the Norman-French name of "Huard" or "Heward", which was in turn derived from the old Germanic name "Hughard" ("hug" meaning heart or spirit, "hard" meaning brave or hardy). Alternately, it could be from the Anglo-Scandinavian name "Haward", meaning chief guardian. Howard family history begins in Cumberland, and the first recorded instance of the name is Robert Howarde (an alternate spelling) in 1221. Howard genealogy includes James Howell Howard, the only fighter pilot in WWII's European Theater to attain the Medal of Honor. The Howard family motto is "sola virtus invicta", which means "Virtue alone invincible".
