What town or area did the Surname GARD/ GARDE come from in Ireland. Looking for information how 3 brothers came to Australia from Ireland. William GARD born 1816, John GARD born 1819, Thomas GARD born 1823. Can't find their names on any shipping records. Can't find any record of convicts?
Can someone give some ideas where to search for information

Surnames: Gard/Garde
My Gard/Garde's came to Prince Edward Island, Canada from Padstow, Minster, Cornwal England. The extreme south western point of England. South of Bude. They were shipbuilders in England and Canada. Mine were part of the Hugeonots from the Gard Valley in So of France who came to England (became Protestant) and my GGFather was born in Canada in 1950=He was a John Gard. You can find some info on the PEI site about the Gard's. Some of the people have put a very interesting book out about the Gard's and many of them still live around Lot 11 on the Island, a lot of them came away to Boston but I don't know of any that went to Australia, I don't know why they would have been on a convict ship. Roger Gard came across to USA (York,Maine) in the 1500's on the Pied Cow, he was the Mayor of York and a very influencial man for those days, I think the ship came over about 1535. Check the ships list for that year or 1635. The name John comes up often in that surname.(was spelled Guard=at one time)

Your reference to the Garde coming to Australia as convicts is incorrect little do you know not only was it convicts coming to Australia. John Gard/Garde/De La Gard depending which document you read was in fact a Master Mariner who paid passage for him and his wife Ann Edith Morton to come to Australia, why ??? God knows. He was born in Weybridge Surrey 1806 married Ann Morton born 1812 in Rochester Kent in 1836 the same year they left for Australia. So there were other people other than convicts coming to our great Country.

Surnames: Gard, Garde Geard Tillygarde or de la Garde
My family original name de la Garde come from France after a Pierre de la Garde was executed for treason , 1550/60 had three sons Nicholas, Henry and I think John and settled in England.
Not sure what happened then but the family settled in Middlesex . In 1819 there was a crime and a Charles Garde was convicted and sent to Australia.
convicted 27 Oct 1819 for seven Years. Arrived on the vessel Earl St Vincent. The story goes that some of the family changed the name all in differant ways, some Gaurd, Garde,Geard and some even Tillygarde. My Aunts say that a murder was done, and a lot of problems came about for the family. In my search I see we have so many ancetors it will be impossible to follow the line from the beginning, if anyone can help that would be great, My family settled in Oldham or Greater Manchester sometime around 1830.

I am also looking for the family of Pierre Gard and any information about his crime. Can I ask where you got your information - was it Sit John Oglander's Royalist Notebook? If not, you need to have a look at it. Oglander had a pretty poor opinion of the Gard family who were minor gentry on the Isle of Wight.
I have no proof of this, but suspect that they stood on opposite sides both politically and religiously during the Civil War.

I believe some of the family may have moved to Cornwall (this could be John). I think Henry was a coach builder in Smithfield and Nicholas (who may also have been known as Richard) moved to the Isle of Wight. There are later connections with Lewes in Sussex

You can try for Isle of Wight records as well

When you speak of civil war do you mean Ireland 1798? or 1922 or......... or the USA Civil War?
