Land Family CrestThe English surname Land, also found in Ireland, has two distinct origins. Firstly the name Land is topographical for someone who lived in the country, as opposed to a town, or on an estate. The derivation is from the pre
-7th century word "land", meaning territory. The second origin is from the early medieval English for someone who lived in a forest glade. This is from the French word "launde". The name is first recorded in the early 13th Century when Thomas de la Lande is recorded in the "Northamptonshire Pipe Rolls" in 1205. The earliest record of the name in the New World is in 1635 when George and Sarah Land arrived in Boston, Massachusetts. Today there are approximately 21,000 bearers of the name Land living in the US.
