Oldland is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from a family once having lived in an enclosed region. The surname Oldland originally derived from the Old English word hough which referred to a small protected space.

Oldland Early Origins



The surname Oldland was first found in Lancashire at Thingwall, a detached hamlet, in the township of Little Woolton, parish of Childwall, union and hundred of West Derby. "Thyngwall was given in exchange by King John to an individual whose name is not now on record. In the following reign Richard, son of Thurston de Holland, held a carucate of land here 'of our lord the king,' for one mark, in exchange for his inheritance in Snodden (Smithden), 'which the king placed in his own forest.'"

Another branch was found at Dalbury in Derbyshire in early times. " In the reign of Edward II. Dalbury and Lees were the property of Sir Robert Holland." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

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 Oldland or a variant listed above: Gabriel Holland settled in Virginia in 1623; Edward Holland settled in Virginia in 1637; John Holland settled in Jamaica in 1661; another John Holland settled in Virginia in 1649.
