The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Lounde come from when the family resided in an area that was referred to as the laund, which was Old Norman word meaning the open space in a forest or the lawn. There were a number of locations in England with this topograghic place-name including Yorkshire and Lancashire.

Lounde Early Origins



The surname Lounde was first found in Yorkshire at Lund, a village and civil parish in the East Riding of Yorkshire in the union of Beverley, Bainton-Beacon division of the wapentake of Harthill. There is also a Lund in Lancashire in the parish of Kirkham, union of the Fylde, hundred of Amounderness but this parish was constituted in 1840.

Lounde Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Lounde has been recorded under many different variations, including Lund, Lun, Lunn, Lwn, Lunt and others.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Lounde or a variant listed above: George Lund arrived in New York in 1820; Charles, Henry, John, and Peter Lund all arrived in Philadelphia between 1840 and 1860; Henry Lunt settled in Massachusetts in 1633.
