I met a Darrell Byard in Memphis, TN who I had no idea i was kin too. His Grandfather (might be great grandfather was named William BYard. I spoke to my father, Kenneth Byard about that and he said his grandfather (my great grandfather) was named William Byard. Darrell Byard said his ancestors came to America 3 or 4 generations ago from Ireland. My father had the Byard name researched a few years ago and it said that Byard was English. I am curious what everyone else is finding out.
