Drinkard Family History

Drinkard Name Meaning
Perhaps an altered spelling of German Trinkart or Trinkert, nicknames for a drinker, or Dutch Drinckwaard, which Debrabandere suggests could be an occupational name for a publican or innkeeper, though he thinks it is more likely to be a reinterpreted form of Drinkwater. EG, DEB, 1881, UK 0.
