About The Sutherd Family
Please sign in to see more.
Compilation of the Sutherd Family Data in Virginia, Illinois and England is based on  the documents that was found with the following names:  Southard, Southworth,  Sudduth, Suddarth, Suthard, Sutheard & Sutherd.  Documents which have been researched  contained sufficient evidence to establish the lines herein.                        The following data starts with Deborah Brockman B: 29-Sep-1952 Springfield, Sangamon  Co., IL., and goes all the back to Orme Fitz Southworth B:961 England. On the  Southard, Southworth, Sudduth, Suddarth, Suthard, Sutheard, and Sutherd the  generation number is 36. Nothing was found passed the year 961.     Some of the  information that I used is from The Sutherd/Suthard/Southard Family of Virginia and  Cass Co., IL., By Calvin E Sutherd, Boca Raton, Florida October 1977.   According to  all the research that was done on this family the Southards are all descended from  the ancient Southworth family of Somersetshire and Lancashire, England, which derived  its name from the Southworth estate in Baroney of Newton.  The name Southard seems to  have been a Dutch variation of the English families who fled England in the 1500's to  escape regligious persecution.  They settled in and near Leyden, Holland.  In Holland  they raised their families intermarried with the Dutch and apdopted the Dutch  language. Later some of their decendants came to America. some settled in New  England, while others settled in Long Island, N. Y. and Virginia.  In America the  name is found spelled Southard, Southworth, Sudduth, Suddarth, Suthard, Sutheard, and  Sutherd.  There is a great similiarity in all areas of Colonial America of the  spelling of the given names of the males, such as John, Joseph, Isaac, Elias, Moses,  Robert, Benjamin, Thomas, George, Calvin and William.  The Progenton of the Virginia  Southards of the 18th Century was Thomas Henry Southard B: 1615 Leyden, South  Holland, and D: between 1688 and 1890 in Livingston, N. Y.                            The information enclosed has been complied over the last 4 years. Thanks to my  Grandfather Russell Sutherd for giving me alot of information and still remembering  everything at the age of 99. When Grandpa Russell would talk about the Sutherd's he  new them by their middle names only, I soon found out that was very true when doing  the research. When researching the Census they did mostly use there middle name. Also  Thanks to my Mom Beverly (Sutherd) Brockman for giving me alot of information  and  for the Sutherd pictures and to all the other relatives that was willing to share  information with me Thanks. I have done my best to document what I have, to try to  make sure what I have is accurate but I just want you to know that there will be  mistakes but not intentionally. What I'm trying to say is there will be mistakes,  expect them but also expect that there is probably alot of truth in what you read  also. On the Lyons side of the family we do have Cherokee Indian Blood from the Rainwater side of  the family and we also had a Famous Singer & Songwriter Marvin Rainwater (7-2-25 - 9-17-2013).  However if you do know of a correction please send it to me and help me keep  this up to date.   I hope all enjoy the family history.                             By: Deborah S. (Brockman) Brown  Lakeland, FL.  12 May
