Wayland Early Origins



The surname Wayland was first found in Devon 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 when they moved to Gloucestershire in the year 1273 and William Welond held estates in that shire.
