LANDERS Family HistoryRecorded in the spellings of Launder, Lander, Landor, Lavender, Larnder, and the patronymic Landers, this is an English surname. It is occupational and job descriptive for an official who superintended the laundry usually to a royal or noble household or perhaps a monastery. This person was in effect the steward of the linen, being responsible for the washing, repair, and renewal of soft furnishings. The history of the city of York written in 1785, but referring to a period in the Middle Ages about the year 1300 states that 'David le Lardiner holds one serjeantry and keeper of the Forest Gaol, and is also seizer of cattle which are taken for indebtedness to the king'.
