Pillard Family History

Pillard Name Meaning
Of uncertain origin. Pillard is a French surname, from a derivative of Old French pilleur ‘plunderer’; however, the distribution of the name in the U.S. does not comply with the normal pattern for names of French origin. It could perhaps be an altered form of English Pollard.
