The name Hollander has a long Anglo-Saxon heritage. The name comes from when a family lived in an enclosed region. The surname Hollander originally derived from the Old English word hough which referred to a small protected space.

Hollander Early Origins



The surname Hollander was first found in Lancashire at Thingwall, a detached hamlet, in the township of Little Woolton, parish of Childwall, union and hundred of West Derby. "Thyngwall was given in exchange by King John to an individual whose name is not now on record. In the following reign Richard, son of Thurston de Holland, held a carucate of land here 'of our lord the king,' for one mark, in exchange for his inheritance in Snodden (Smithden), 'which the king placed in his own forest.'"

Another branch was found at Dalbury in Derbyshire in early times. " In the reign of Edward II. Dalbury and Lees were the property of Sir Robert Holland." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Hollander, or a variant listed above:
