Origins Available: French, Scottish

Where did the Scottish lanter family come from? What is the Scottish lanter family crest and coat of arms? When did the lanter family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the lanter family history?

During that dark period of history known as the Middle Ages, the name of lanter was first used in France. While the patronymic and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the name of the father and mother respectively, are the most common form of hereditary surname in France, occupational surnames also emerged during the late Middle Ages. Many people, such as the lanter family, adopted the name of their occupation as their surname. However, an occupational name did not become a hereditary surname until the office or type of employment became hereditary. The surname lanter was an occupational name for a grower of lavender. Looking back further, we find the name lanter was originally from the Old English word lavendier, which indicated someone of that profession.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Landers, Lander, Landes, Landis, Landor and others.

First found in Bedfordshire, where Almaric de Landres held lands in Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire in the 13th century. He originated in Burgundy, France with the spelling Landres which is also a commune today in Lorraine. The northern-eastern location of the name in France makes the Norman influence very probable. [1] At about the same time, Ysabelle la Lauendere was listed a census in 1253 and Ralf la Lavendered was listed in the Subsidy Rolls of Somerset in 1268. Thomas Launder was listed in Yorkshire in 1331 and later Elyzabeth Lander was listed in the Subsidy Rolls of Staffordshire in 1524. [2]
