Lillard was a wine grower. In 1687 he was living in Angers. Lillard was a Huguenot.
Birth date estimate of 1615 is based on family structure from general sources and estimated date of Moise Lillard's birth, which, in turn based on the approximate birth date of John Lillard.
Notes from Joan James: The first reference of the Lollard (Lillard) name came under King Henry V of England when Thomas Lollard was knighted for his gallant bravery in the Battle of Agincourt 1415. During the English invasion of France 1420 Sir Thomas Lollard was supposed to have met a French lady of genteel birth, this romance led to marriage, as a result Sir Thomas Lollard decided not to return to Britain and gave up his knightly rights as well as changing his name to Lillard. Thomas Lillard lived in the town of Samur on the Loire River. There is about 4 generations between Thomas Lillard and his direct descendant Jasper Lillard.
Jasper Lillard was a vine grower and in addition to tending vines owned and operated a line of boats up and down the Loire River, from Angers to Nantes, and from Angers to Tours. Miss Isaacs gave up her religion to marry Jasper as he was a devout Huguenot.
