Newland Family HistoryRecorded as Newland and Newlands, this in spite of its spelling, is an ancient Anglo-Scottish surname. It is generally considered to be of locational origin from the places called Newlands in at least six English counties ranging from Cornwall to Cumbria. The place in Worcestershire for example is recorded as "la Newelande" in the Assize Court Rolls of the county in 1221. However, the surname could be topographical and as such was in medieval times given to a person who lived by lands recently brought into cultivation, or added to a village. Both of these interpretations derive from the Olde English pre 7th century word "neowe", meaning new, and "land"...
