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.
