Although an uncommon name (maybe one or two in an average county phone book), there are a few "Deards"'s left in the UK. My own branch comes from East Anglia.
I believe that "Deards" is a corruption of "Deerden", a gamekeeper of Deer. Interestingly my branch of the family has a genetic trait - beta thalassaemia minor - usually found only in people from a mediterranean origin, but the family is mystified where this came from.
