The WarlandWorlandFami Surname Project
The Warland surname in the UK may have its origins in Oxford, with the earliest reference to the surname as a word in the Domesday Book of 1086. Oxford Warlands come from the area where the word was found (Cowley). Other Warlands can be found in Dorset from the mid 1400s, documented in more detail from the 1600s. The Worland family is believed to originate in Somerset. A Cambridge line is well documented. There are also Warland families in the US who are originally from Norway and took on the surname. These Warlands are not related to the UK Warland family. The Warland family in South Africa has its origins in a male whose father's name was never disclosed, and took on his mother's surname.
