G'day all, i'm Ashley Malzard, i live in Melbourne, Australia. I'm very interested to know if we are all related somehow. This is the first time i have searched my last name. my dad is Gary Malzard, who also lives in Melbourne. His dad's name is Mike, and mike's brother is Ian Malzard. All Malzards that i previously knew about currently reside in New Zealand. i did however know that our name originated in or near france. So i was pleased to see that most of the forum entries were referring to channel islands, near france.
if this info helps, my grandmother's name used to be Judith Warren, (currently Wallace) and my great-grandmother's name was Helen.
If anyone has any info about when some Malzards emmigrated to New Zealand and roughly when our surname originated, this knowledge would be greatly appreciated as i'm very keen, as i
m sure you are too, to learn about our families beginning
