The distinguished surname Van Vreeland is Dutch in origin. It is most likely derived from the place name "Vreeland," which is itself derived from the Middle Dutch word "vrede," meaning "legal protection against armed violence." Thus, the town of Vreeland was probably located in an area protected by official restrictions on combat.
