Bernard Genealogy & History

Bernard is a descriptive name popular in Ireland, England, Scotland, France, Italy and Germany, with over 100 spellings ranging from Barnard to Bieratowicz. Derived from Old German "bern", meaning bear, and "hard", meaning brave, its perennial popularity grew with usage by two saints: St. Bernard of Menthon (923-1008) and St. Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153). English Bernard family history includes Westmoreland land grants by King William after the Norman invasion as well as dominion over Wexford and Waterford in Ireland after invasion under King Henry II. The first immigrant in American Bernard genealogy landed in Virginia in 1625. The Bernhard motto "virtus probata florebit" means "tried virtue will flourish".
