GARLAND Family History

This long-established surname is of dual derivation in England, being either a topographical name from residence by a triangular-shaped piece of land, deriving from the Olde English pre 7th Century "gara", triangular piece of land, with "land", land, or a locational name from Garland, a minor place in Chumleigh, Devonshire, so called from the above elements. Alternatively, Garland may have originated as a metonymic occupational name for a maker of garlands of chaplets, deriving from the 13th Century ld French. Early examples of the surname form the former source include: William de Garland (Essex, 1208), and Robert de Garlande (Yorkshire, 1225)...
