My Larder Family Tree originates in the central part of Somerset, England, around the village of Wedmore. There is a long history of Larders within the area which I have dated back as far as the mid 1400's. Though I'm still trying, we haven't yet formed links for my own ancestry quite as far back as this. I've followed a line of ancestry back to the mid 1600's. There is also a major concentration of Larders in the areas of Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, though I have yet to identify a link with the Somerset Larders.
I am keen to hear from anyone with an interest in the surname of Larder, or any of its variants, principally Lader, especially if you have origins in the Parishes of Wedmore or Meare or know of any connections with Larders in other areas and would love to share my findings.
Although I've made contact with many descendants of Larders and Laders who travelled abroad, specifically to America and Australia, during the 19th Century, I'm especially keen to hear from anyone who has any further information about these lines of the family and to develop a world-wide network of Somerset Larders. My findings are developing continually, and I've got a lot more information than is listed on these pages, so feel free to contact me.
