Aylorde, Henry (1818 -1874)

Henry Aylorde was, according to Franks [Franks 1026-7] a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries. Neither The Society of Antiquaries, nor The Royal Society of Arts has any record of Aylorde (e-mail May 2017). However, Anthony Pincott of the Bookplate Society has identified him as Henry Ollard, born in Wisbech, the son of Henry Ollard and Mary Staunton. He attended Didsbury College , Manchester, after which he served as a Congregationalist minister in Coventry and Derby. In 1845, while at Didsbury College, he was elected F.S.A. In 1848 he married in Daventry Alice Underwood (d. 1895), and together had three daughters and a son, Henry Thomas Ollard (1853-1909).
