Early Origins of the Youlden family

The surname Youlden was first found in Lancashire at Yealand. 1 2 "Yealand Conyers and Yealand Redmayne are two townships in the parish of Warton, Lancashire Yealand Hall still remains." 3

While the name originates in Lancashire, we must look to Devon and Northumberland to find the first entries in early rolls. There we found John de la Yaldelonde in Devon and William de Yelaund in Northumberland in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273. 3 Back in Lancashire, Adam de Yelland was warden of the Honor of Lancaster, 13 Henry III (during the thirteenth year of the reign of Henry III.) 4

Later the Howdenshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379 included an entry for Willelmus de Yeland. 3
