Richard Genealogy & History

Richard is a German and English name from the Old German Ricard or Richard, composed of ric, meaning power, and hard, which means brave, strong, or hardy. It is generally translated as "powerful ruler", which does not exactly match the literal meaning but does make more sense. It was present in England already when the Normans came and spread afterwards, particularly as Ricard. Richard family history starts with Thomas Richardes, recorded in Worcestershire's Subsidy Rolls in 1327. Richard genealogy includes many notable people, such as Marine General Ronald Richard, Army General Virgil Richard, and San Diego Padres pitcher Clayton Richard.
