The family name is common in Normandy today and could derive from a number of places with typically woody landscape, or covered in gorse or furze. There is no record of which particular hamlet or commune was home to the first Deslandes to reach Jersey.
We have found nothing to support the contention of some researchers that the name originated in Jersey and relates to the Les Landes area in the north-west of the island. That district would appear also to derive its name from the predominant gorse and furze in the area.
The name was very common in 19th century Jersey.
