The distinguished surname 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.

Vreeland Early Origins



The surname Vreeland was first found in Holland, where the city of Vreeland is located, approximately halfway between Amsterdam and Utrecht. It is likely that the initial bearer of the name was a resident of the town of Vreeland.
