ALLENDER Family History

Recorded as Oland, Olland, Olin, and the equally rare Olanda, Olander and Ollander, as well as possibly Allander and Allender, this is a surname of several potential origins. It is almost certainly English but if not may be from the Netherlands, and hence a Hollander. Many people of Dutch origin were employed in the East Anglia region as engineers working on the mjor drainage schemes of the 15th to 18th centuries. The name has certainly been recorded in the surviving registers of the diocese of Greater London since the mid 17th century as Olander, with the first recording being that of John Olander, whose son William was christened at St Marks church, Stoke Newington, on February 22nd 1664, with the spelling as Allander or Allender being a century or so later.
