Hi David, 

Happy New Year, and thanks so much for reaching out! I hope you'll be able to connect with Bustard relatives and connections here. :)

I have collected some information about this surname which I hope will come in handy as well. 

The name Bustard is of Anglo-Saxon origin. It was named for the 'bustard', a large bird once common in medieval England. The surname Bustard was first found in Devon where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Bustard households in mid-nineteenth century Ireland were mostly found in the northern parts of the island, and you can find a handy overview on the Griffith's Valuation Map website. 

I also found some information about the Bustards in County Donegal on the Genealogy website which might be interesting.

We're always here if you have any questions or could use some help with your research, so please don't hesitate to reach out if you need anything. :)

Thanks Melin,
I do have quite a bit of information on Bustard families in Ireland but am trying to bring myself up to date and find anyone with a current interest, especially in the townland of Clarcam.

Hi David, 

I'm so happy to hear you were able to find out a lot about your roots already! Feel free to reach out to a wonderful organization called Ireland Reaching Out, where great volunteers attempt to connect Irish descendants to their roots, through reverse genealogical research. They might be able to help you find Bustard connections in the townland of Clarcam.

Hi,
Re Margaret, daughter of John Bustard, Clarcam. Did she marry Andrew Greer and move to Rock Island, Illinois?

Hi Lauren,
I have cross-referenced the Parish records for Clarcam with the Griffith Land records and found three families living there with John Bustard at their head in 1857, at the time of the Griffith survey. To place Margaret, it would be helpful to know the name of John's wife? I have the marriage entry for Margaret to Andrew Hammond on 3 Mar 1854.

Hi,
John Bustard was married to Elizabeth Whitley. They had a daughter Margaret Bustard. She married Andrew Hammond. Their daughter Elizabeth Hammond then married Joseph Henderson and moved to Canada. My grandma (94) was telling me stories of them yesterday.

🙌🏼
