An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The Norland surname comes from the Middle English words "north," and "land." It may have been taken on as a habitational name from the place named Norland in West Yorkshire, or it may have been a topographic name used originally from someone who came from a more northern location.

Norland Early Origins



The surname Norland was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1296 when John Northland held estates in that shire.
