HARLAND Family History

This is an Anglo-Saxon locational name with its origins in any of a number of minor places named from the Olde English pre 7th century "har", meaning "grey", or "hara" meaning "hare", plus "land" for "land" or "patch of country". Locational surnames were usually given to the lord of the manor, to the local residents and especially to those who left their original homes and went to live or work in another village or town. On July 28th 1555, Alicia, daughter of Thomae Harland, was christened at Howden, Yorkshire, and the marriage of Johanne Harland to George Mallerye, took place on August 11th 1560, at Filey, Yorkshire.
