For the past 20 years I have been conducting a one name study for the name BALLARD collecting primary source documents and secondary refs to build a mass of Ballard family tree's - I have discovered several independent lines that now are apparent genetically. I have traced my own family back to John Ballard of Much Dewchurch, Herefordshire on the Welsh border of England born circa 1480 The links of decent that I have added here previous are speculative and have been added as having collected all the documents and refs I can find they fit here until such times as they are disproved.
