Early Origins of the Scollan family
The surname Scollan was first found in Lancashire
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 1332 when Adam Scoler held estates in Lancashire
and John de Scolay held estates in Yorkshire
