CARD Family History

Recorded in several spelling forms including Card, Carde, Cardo, Cardoe, Cardow, Cardew, Carder, and Curdoe, this is a medieval English surname. It is however of French-Flemish origins and occupational. Associated nwith the very earliest forms of the textile industry, it derives from the pre 10th century Old French word "carde" meaning a teasle, and in England is probably most associated with the famous Flemish Weavers. These people were brought to England in the 13th century by King Edward 1st (1272 - 1307), to teach the skills of cloth making to the unskilled English.
