I'm looking for info on Emily Elizabeth Hizzard/Izzard born c1876. She was the daughter of William Henry Hizzard/Izzard and married Frank Ernest Rook at Teynham in Kent in 1898. She might have been born in Kent, or possibly London or Scotland.

Any info or advice would be welcomed.

The surname entered on the birth certificates of Sarah Ann Hizzard (Emmas sister) is McHizzard. Any idea where that came from?

Now this is interesting! McHizzard makes me think of a Scottish link. My grandmother Constance Gladys Donovan (nee Rook) was the daughter of Emma Elizabeth's daughter and according her son (my dad) always said there was a link to the McDonald family of Scotland. However nan's mother was born, married and died in Kent, and the Hizzard/Izzard line has been traced back through Kent to Ware in Hertfordshire. In fact so far no link has been found with anything Scottish.

Do you have a copy of the certificate you can email me? What are the parents names down as?

Like I say I haven't come across the name as McHizzard yet but I'd like to find out more.

You can email me at

Just seen the post on Ancestry from Oct 2007.
If you have a look at my profile, you'll see my gt gt gfr was Henry Izzard from Hertford (very near Ware). Please let me know if you think there might be some connection between our families.
In the meantime, I shall research the Hizzards. It would be great if there were a connection - it would explain why I hit a brick wall looking for 'Izzard'!

Unfortunately Ancestry won't let me view your tree [I don't have full access] so I can't see the details of your Henry Hizzard. Could you send me some details by email?

There are numerous spelling variations of the name, I have it recorded as Hizzard, Hizard, Hissard, Hisard, Izzard, Izard, Issard, Isard, and even Hezzard and Izod at times.

Interestingly there are several Henry's in my Hizzard family. Emily's father was Henry William Hizzard [also referred to sometimes as William Henry Hizzard!]

Anyhow send me some info by email and we can take it from there. My email is
