landrum Early Origins



The surname landrum was first found in Aberdeenshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Obar Dheathain), a historic county, and present day Council Area of Aberdeen, located in the Grampian region of northeastern Scotland, where they held a family seat in their territories. The name Lendrum is thought to be of local origin from the place so named near Turriff, Aberdeenshire. The Celtic word "lendrum" means 'moor of the ridge.' The earliest mention of a variation of the name is of a Thomas Leintron, who was a baillie in St.Andrews, 13 miles south of Dundee in 1582.
