There are several possible origins for the distinguished surname Elandt. Firstly, it is derived from the Old English "ealand," meaning "low-lying land" or "island." Alternatively, it may be derived from several place names in Northern England, such as Ealand in Lincolnshire, Little Eland in Northumberland, or Elland in Yorkshire.

Elandt Early Origins



The surname Elandt was first found in the West Riding of Yorkshire, where the surname is descended from Ilbert de Lacy, who was the tenant of the lands of Elland according to the Domesday Book of 1086. Some of the family were found at Whitworth in Lancashire in early times. "The manor [of Whitworth] was granted by 'divers donators' to the convent of Stanlow in Cheshire, in the reign of John; among these donors was Sir John de Elland, parcener of the lordship of Rochdale, who gave one moiety of the manor."

Elandt Spelling Variations



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. Elandt has been recorded under many different variations, including Eland, Elland, Elan, Elande, Eyland, Eyeland, Egland, Eylan and many more.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



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. Elandts were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: Adam Eland, who settled in Virginia in 1690; Robert Eglan, who emigrated from Kent to Maryland in 1737; James Egland, who arrived in New York in 1823.
