lansing History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the lansing family

The surname lansing was first found in Saxony, where the name contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation which would later play a large role in the tribal and national conflicts of the area. In later years the name branched into many houses, each playing a significant role in the local social and political affairs. The name lansing, like many surnames, began as a personal name (before surname usage began). Lanzo means "land" or "nation," which suggests that the name is probably a shortened form of some other name which contains that element.
