Audland Early Origins



The surname Audland was first found in Cheshire at Audlem, a parish, in the union and hundred of Nantwich. Conjecturally, the surname is descended from the original tenant of Audlem, Hugh Traylebrw, who was granted the lordship of Audlem in 1066. His family were from Trelly in the canton of Montmartin-sur-Mer in Normandy. Either Hugh and his lands were 'wasted' along with many other Lordships in Cheshire by Duke William in 1069 or he may have merely been attainted. Twenty years later the tenant of the lands of Audlem or Aldelyme was Richard de Vernon who was recorded in the Domesday Book census of 1086. Richard was a powerful Earl, Audlem was not his chief holding, and it is most likely Hugh was then his under-tenant. "The Tralebews, ancestors of the family of Aldelym or Audlem, are said to have possessed the manor from the Conquest; it subsequently passed by marriage and purchase, in moieties or parts, to various owners."

Audland Spelling Variations



Norman surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. The frequent changes in surnames are largely due to the fact that the Old and Middle English languages lacked definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England, as well as the official court languages of Latin and French, also had pronounced influences on the spelling of surnames. Since medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, rather than adhering to any specific spelling rules, it was common to find the same individual referred to with different spellings. The name has been spelled Audlem, Audlam, Aldelym, Aldelyme, Aldlem, Aldim, Audland and many more.

The Great Migration



Many English families emigrated to North American colonies in order to escape the political chaos in Britain at this time. Unfortunately, many English families made the trip to the New World under extremely harsh conditions. Overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the stormy Atlanti c. Despite these hardships, many of the families prospered and went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the United States and Canada. Early North American immigration records have revealed a number of people bearing the name Audland or a variant listed above: Emma Adlem, aged 70, who arrived at Ellis Island from Red Banks, NJ, in 1924; and Emmag. Adlem, aged 62, who arrived at Ellis Island from Red Bank, New Jersey, in 1923..
