This is one of the most unusual of English surnames. Recorded in the almost unbelievably different spellings of Huddart and Woodard, it is a good example of how surnames from the same source can take completely different developments over a millenium. The origination of both names, and probably five hundred years before the formation of the surname, was the pre 7th century Olde English given name of 'Wudheard'. This name appears in surviving early rolls as for example: Wudardus of Bury St Edmunds in 1148, and Wudardi of Wiltshire in 1168. The first recordings of the surname, and in its different spellings are coincidentally in the same year, although a hundred miles apart. These are Walter Wudard of Warwick, in the Assize Rolls for that city in 1221, and William Hubard, in the Pipe Rolls of Colchester, Essex. In the medieval period of the 13th century when surnames came into more general use, local dialects were so thick that they constituted separate languages. When this 'problem' was combined with the fact that only a tiny percentage of the population could even write their names, the opportunity for errors in surname spelling was multiplied. Later examples of the surname spelling include Joseph Huddart (1741 - 1816), designer, manufacturer and hydrographer to the East India Company, and Nathaniel Woodard (1811 - 1891), who formed the famous Woodard Schools which still survive today, in the last years of the 20th century.

Still to this day not many can spell it correctly. Looked at that site Tomarse and as soon as that Visa logo came up that was the end to it. My cousin Graham is doing the family tree so managed to throw a few curly ones for him to overcome. What are family for if not to stuff ones relo's up. At least I have managed to get my details emended and as said many times before? When doing a family tree concentrate on the female side as that will give a better linkage and even that is not always correct what with taking in babies from others and claiming parentage especially years ago but still goes on today.

That sometimes works Les, but most times you end up, up the rectal orifice.
What you have to remember is that most commoners could read or write so they had to rely on the priest/ minister writing it for them. So that as in one case of mine the womans name was Hanna or Hannah or Anna and that caused a new problem as to which one you followed One had 10 kids with 2 fathers the other 6 kids with 3 different fathers and the other 15 kids all with different names. Ho by the way the minister called her the village harlot in the parish records when she accused some poor fella of being the father, when it was well known that he was in the new world and had been there for the past 18 months . LOL

My personal family tree is real easy to construct. Arrived in Oz 1969 that is the start date anything before that does not matter as I am who I am and fecking happy with the bloke in the mirror in the morning. Like all those bloody religious nuts wasting a whole life time to only find out that there is nothing at the end LOL. live dangerously die young and be a good looking corpse. Obviously not lived dangerously enough and gone way past good looking. So two out of three down the gurgler.

Hi,
I have had enquiries a few times on this name (Woodard) and every time it has been very hard to get further back after 900 ad as the name changes back and forth. Shall try to find some of my old records and pass them on.
