OLIN Family History
This is a very unusual surname. It is apparently recorded in England as Oland, Olland, Olin, Olanda, Olander and Ollander, all quite rare, as well as Allander and Allender, and has probably two possible national origins. It may be a derivative of the surnames Holland or Hollander. These were used to describe either a person of Dutch origin from the province of Holland in the Netherlands, or an English person and who came from a village called Holland of which there are at least ten surviving examples from Lincolnshire down to Surrey.
