Rowland Genealogy & History

Rowland is an English surname, with two possible origins. First, it may come from the Norman name Rolant/Rollant, from the Old German hrod, meaning renown, and land, meaning territory. Second, it could be locational, from several places named Rowland in Derbyshire and Sussex, descending from the Old Norse ra, for roebuck, and lundr, which means grove. Rowland family history enters the books with Simon Rolland, entered as a witness in the Assize Court Rolls of Lincolnshire. Rowland genealogy lays claim to many well-known individuals, such as Nobel laureate Frank Rowland, three-term Connecticut Governor John Rowland, and former New South Wales Governor James Rowland
