The surname Yelland 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 13th century when Adam of Yeland held the estates in 1230 in that shire.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Yeland, Yelland, Yeoland, Yalland, Yolland, Yealand, Yelaund, Yellen and many more.
