Nyland Family History

This interesting name is of English locational origin from "Nyland", a place in both Dorset, recorded "Iland" in the Domesday Book 1086 and "Liland" in Feet of Fines of Dorset, 1212, and Somerset, recorded "Ederedeseie" in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles, 725. The former derives from the Old English word "iegland", island, the addition of "N" comes from "atten iegland", at the island (the "-n" at the end of "atten" being fused with "iegland") and the latter from the pre-seventh Century personal name "Eadred", thus meaning "Eadred's island".
