The English surname Ackland is an habitational name from Acland Barton in Landkey, Devon, named with the Old English personal name Acca and the Old English lanu meaning “lane.” The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Robert de Acland, which was dated 1257, in the "Cartulary of Oseney Abbey", Oxfordshire. The Devonshire Acklands are also said to owe their surname to a grove of oaks near the seat of Ackland Barton, where lived, in 1275, one William de Ackelane. Among the early recordings in Devon are the christenings of Honor Ackland on January 3rd 1544, at Barnstaple, and of Henri Ackland on December 19th 1567 at St. Giles in the Wood.
