Origins of surname

There are two possible sources for this name. One is that it is a corruption of launder, and referred either to a laundry worker or owner, or a textile worker who washed cloth. The second derivation is from the word for a countryman or land dweller, as opposed to someone living in a town. The name goes back to the 13th century in England.

Early records

The name does not appear in Jersey records until 1900, with the arrival from England of Edward Lander, who married Hilda Noel in that year.
