Origins of surname

This is derived from the personal name Roland, which was very popular in the Pyrenees. It has Germanic origins, from Hrodland (hrod = glory + land = country).

Early records

The family arrived in Jersey, along with many other seasonal farmworkers, from Ploeuc-sur-Lie in the north of Brittany in the second half of the 19th century.
