RICKARD Family History

Recorded in the spellings of Rickard and Rickards, this is an Anglo-Scottish surname, but of Germanic origins. It derives from the famous pre 7th century personal name "Richard", meaning "powerful ruler", from the elements "ric", meaning power, and "hard", brave and strong. Given such a pedigree it is not perhaps surprising that throughout the centuries it was, and remains, one of the most popular names. It is said to have been introduced into Britain by the Normans after the 1066 Invasion, and it is therefore perhaps surprising that it is so romantically associated with King Richard 1st of England, and known as Coeur de Lyon...
