Roland Genealogy & History

Roland is an English-Scottish name dating to early medieval times. One derivation is from the Norman given name Rollant, derived from German hrod (renown) and land (land), popularized after its use by a Charlemagne warrior. Alternatively Roland could be derived from places so named in Derbyshire and Sussex, from Old Norse ra (buck) and lundr (woods). Spelling variations include Rolan, Rolland, and Rowland, and it is an anglicized version of the Gaelic O'Ruadhain. Roland family history is first recorded in the Scottish county of Ayrshire and the English county of Bedfordshire. American Roland genealogy began with Francis Roland in Virginia in 1656.
