Origin of the name ADLARD.
Etymology of the name ADLARD.
Meaning of the baby name ADLARD.


ADLARD.  Contracted form of English Adelard (q.v.), itself a contraction of A.S. Æthelheard (q.v.), meaning "nobly stern." (English Surnames, Bardsley, 1889)

N.B.Adlard Stewkley, the father of Squire Adlard Stukeley, was uncle of Dr. Wm. Stukeley, and was in the practice of the law at Holbeach.  The Parish Register of Elm, near Wisbech, gives the following information, kindly sent to me by the Vicar, the Rev. F. Holdship Cox:"Marriage June 14, 1687.  License Adlard Stukeley and Sarah Squier."  There is also the baptism at Elm June 24th, 1662, of "Sarah Squier, the daughter of Thomas Squier and Margaret his wyfe."  As the tablet in the north aisle of Holbeach Church to Sarah, the widow of Adlard Stukeley, late of Holbeach, gent., gives her death 31, January, 1730, "in the Sixty-Eighth year of her Age," the identity seems established, as well as the reason for the christian name of "Squier."  Adlard Squier Stukeley was a Justice of the Peace "for these Parts."  He was elected a Fellow of the London Antiquarian Society 1st Feb., 1718 (Minutes, by Richard Gough, London, 1798, 4to.); "withdrew on going into the Country 1721."  He died, about 70 years old, in 1768.  The Gentleman's Magazine, vol. xxxviii., p. 303, has probably this incorrect notice of his death:--"Died June 23, 1768 Hardley Stukeley Esq. of Lincolns.," "Hardley" being a misprint for "Adlard."  The tablet in Holbeach Church says "He died June the 13, 1768."  Probably a mistake for 23. (The Holbeach Parish Register of Baptisms, Marriages, and Burials, A.D. 1606 and 1613-1641, 1892).
