lander History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: German, Jewish, Scottish


During that dark period of history known as the Middle Ages, the name of lander was first used in France. While the patronymic and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the name of the father and mother respectively, are the most common form of hereditary surname in France, occupational surnames also emerged during the late Middle Ages. Many people, such as the lander family, adopted the name of their occupation as their surname. However, an occupational name did not become a hereditary surname until the office or type of employment became hereditary. The surname lander was an occupational name for a grower of lavender. Looking back further, we find the name lander was originally from the Old English word lavendier, which indicated someone of that profession.

Early Origins of the lander family


The surname lander was first found in Bedfordshire, where Almaric de Landres held lands in Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire in the 13th century. He originated in Burgundy, France with the spelling Landres which is also a commune today in Lorraine. The northern-eastern location of the name in France makes the Norman influence very probable.

Thomas Launder was listed in Yorkshire in 1331 and later Elyzabeth Lander was listed in the Subsidy Rolls of Staffordshire in 1524. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
