Loller History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
The origins of the distinguished surname Loller are somewhat obscure. The name is most likely related to the Middle Dutch word "lollaerd," meaning "babbler of nonsense"; alternatively, it is possible that the name is connected to the early Middle English word "lollere," meaning "mumbler," a name applied to a pious person. "Loller" was substituted in the 14th century for "Lollard" as a description of the followers of John Wyclif, an English Bible translator who was condemned as a heretic. 
Early Origins of the Loller family
The surname Loller was first found in East England, where the name is thought to have originated. The first known bearer of the name was Elfred le Lollere, who was recorded in the Cartularium Monasterii de Rameseia of Huntingdonshire in 1133.
