Hi! My BEARD family are from Orsett, Essex.Currently I have my great grandmother, MAY ALICE BEARD(born 1889, Orsett). Her parents were JAMES Beard (born Orsett c1852) and Elizabeth Warren. His father was GEORGE Beard, born Orsett c 1814. My grandfather(born Orsett 1908) was the illegitimate son of May Alice, and also took the name Beard. I have census details if interested-have you any more info on this line? Thanks!
