Origins of surname

This is one of those family names which it is sometimes suggested originated in Jersey and refers to people living at Les Landes. This is not true. De la Lande is a name of simple French origin, meaning living on uncultivated land. It is particularly prevalent in Brittany. The variant Deslandes, which has the same derivation and, according to rules of French grammar, is an acceptable contraction of Les Landes, is also common in Brittany and is believed to have come from there to Jersey rather than vice versa. There is not believed to be any connection between the De la Lande and Deslandes families in Jersey.

Early records

There are records of the name and variants in official records as far back as 1340 (the bizarre del Lande) and the first appearance in Church records is in the St Saviour baptism register in 1608, when the first of five children of Jean and an unnamed wife was recorded.
