Looking for info on the following family.
James Folliard and Isabella Crawford, both born around 1800 in Ireland. Married in 1821 in Glasgow, Scotland. Their children were William, James, Adam, Sarah, Martha, Mary and Isabella. Spellings also included Follyard, Foyert, Foliart, etc.

Also, does anyone know anything of the origin of the name.

Thanks,
Robert Cameron.

Could this possibly be connected to a Stephan Folliard on the Uvalde, Texas census 3 July 1860?

Dear Robert

We think the name Folliard originates from France, and there are a lot of Folliards in Orleans in France. Some of our desendents came over in an army led by General by the name of Humbart who came to the aide of the Irish Catholics who were having an uprising against the English. He won five battles and was defeated in the 6th, around the West of Ireland he is very famous and there is a Humbart Trail where you can follow his steps.

Regards
Brendan Folliard

Hi Brendan,

Thank you very much for your informative reply, I will have a look at the info concerning the Humbart Trail, it sounds very interesting. It's also good to know of an area in France where the name Folliard was common. Do you know of any Folliards in Ireland who were (or became) Protestant by around the 1790s?

Best wishes,
Robert Cameron

Robert,

The sir name "Folliard" is French. I think they came in as farmers during one of the Protestant second invasions. The name Folliad is common in some parts of France. I would bet that some place near Normandy (because of the Vikings). My g-grandmother Bridget Folliard born 1862 in co. Roscommon told us storys about a Squire Folliard. Some were Protestant and some were Catholic. While in Irland in Feb 2010, I asked about this and was bluntly told that Irland had no squire.

Hi Mark,

Thanks for the information. Yes I have seen references to 'Squire Folliard' , and there are old tales about him. Not sure if they are fiction or based on any true events though.

I'll send you a link with the story in case you are interested.

Thanks,
Rob
