SCOTLAND Family History

This unusual and interesting name has three documented origins, the first of which is from a Norman personal name composed of the elements "Scot" an ethnic name and "land", territory. The personal name is first recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 at "Scotlandus" (from Kent) and "Scollandus" (Sussex), and is also found as "Escotland" and "Escolland". The second origin is English and is an ethnic name for someone from Scotland, usually for a Gaelic-speaker within Scotland, those who came originally from Ireland.
