An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The ancient Anglo-Saxon surname Jaland came from the baptismal nameJollan. Baptismal names began to appear as surnames relatively late in the growth of the naming tradition. This is a little surprising, given the popularity of biblical figures in the Christian countries of Europe. Nevertheless, surnames derived from baptismal names grew in popularity during the Middle Ages, and have become one of the foremost sources for surnames.

Jaland Early Origins



The surname Jaland was first found in Lincolnshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

Jaland Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Jaland family name include Jolland, Jollan, Jolan, Jolin, Joline, Jalland, Golland, Gollan, Golan and many more.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Jaland surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Andrew Joline, who sailed to New York in 1686; Patrick Golane to Barbados in 1678; Elizabeth and John Jolland to America in 1772; and William Golan to Philadelphia in 1841..
