The French word ‘jardin’ means ‘garden’ or ‘orchard’ so its presumed that the family originally from France may have lived nearby one or other. Members of the du Jardon family traveled over with William during the Norman conquests in 1066. Records of the name don’t appear in Scotland though until around 1153, the name Wmfredus de Jardin appearing on several charters.
