Introduction

From the earliest records in Southern England, four early Scard Families emerged, spanning a 60 mile radius [Map]
encompassing the Counties of Dorset, Hampshire, Somerset & Wiltshire, with small isolated Fragments & Satellite Modules spreading as far south as Devonshire. It has long been considered that these Families may have once been
connected and in search of this common Ancestor much research has been done. It is hoped that these pages may not
only share the large volume of Documents & Information found for each Family but also form a base for others, who
in time, may eventually prove an early connection and embrace all the Ancient Scard Families to a single progenitor.
