Laird Genealogy & History

Laird is a pre-medieval Scottish-Irish-English surname, derived from the early Gaelic/Middle English laverd, meaning a landlord. Hence, Laird is a name of status, as also confirmed in its use as a Scottish title. Laird family history dates to feudal days in the border counties and in Berwickshire, where the family owned an estate. The family motto, spero meliora, means I hope for the better, and the boars' heads on the coat of arms signifies fierce fighters. Laird genealogy includes the Scottish/Irish variations MacLaird and McLeard, meaning son of Laird. The first American Laird immigrants were in 1741 to New Jersey.
