Sands Genealogy & History

Sands is an English and Scottish name with several possible origins. First, it could be a diminutive for the personal name Alexander or Sander. Second, it could be a topographical name given to people who lived near sandy soil, from the Old English sand (and Old High German sant and Old Norse sande). Finally, it could be a locational name given to people who lived in the town Sands in Fife. Sands family history is first recorded with William de Saudes (an alternate spelling), who lived in Surrey in 1205; early Sands were also found in Lancashire. Sands genealogy includes the award-winning author Lynsay Sands.
