Cleveland Genealogy & History

Cleveland is an English locational name that refers to a place near Middlesbrough called Cleveland, meaning land of the cliffs. The name is derived from the Old English clif, a slope or bank, and land, which means land. Cleveland family history shows that the name may also be a Norwegian locational name referring to farmsteads in Vestlandet and Agder called Kleiveland or Kleveland, from the Old Norse kleif, a rocky incline, or klefi, a closet, referring to a sunken land formation. The Cleveland family motto is semel et simper: once and always. Prominent people in Cleveland genealogy include US President Grover Cleveland.
