Early Origins of the Cundeland family
The surname Cundeland was first found in Yorkshire
where they held a family seat
in the North Riding as Lords of the Manor of Cundall, originally pre Conquest, Cundel, at the time of the Norman Conquest
by Duke William of Normandy
in 1066. In the Domesday Book
survey taken in 1086 the village of Cundall was held by Alured from the Count of Mortain. Conjecturally the Cundalls are descended from this Norman noble.

The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations
are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Cundeland has been recorded under many different variations, including Cundall, Cundal, Cundell, Cundel, Cundil, Cundill, Condall, Condal, Condel and many more.

Migration of the Cundeland family to the New World and Oceana
To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England
, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Cundelands were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: John and Elizabeth Cundall who settled in Georgia in 1734 with their three sons, John, Thomas, and William; Edward and Robert Cundell arrived in Maryland in 1737 and the next year moved to Virginia.
