Newlands


Variants Newland, Newlands. A locality name meaning 'of Newland', from parishes found in Counties Worcestershire and Gloucestershire. This name is of English descent and is found in many ancient manuscripts in the above country. Examples of such are a Roger de la Neulonde, County Cambridgeshire, who was recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England, in the year 1273 and a Richard le Neulond, County Cambridgeshire, was also recorded in the same year in this ancient document. Names were recorded in these ancient documents to make it easier for their overlords to collect taxes and to keep records of the population at any given time. When the overlords acquired land by either force or gifts from their rulers, they created charters of ownership for themselves and their vassals. Other examples of this name were found in the persons of a John Newlande and Grace Sampson who were granted a marriage license, in London, in the year 1573 and a William Newland and Mary Spratt were married in Saint James, Clerkenwell, in the year 1670.
