What 's in a name

The name of the Vlieland family is already excisting in 1580 in Katwijk.
The surname originates from the small island of Vlieland.
The reason why the family left the island is not known.
On the island they just needed there own and fathersname for example Jan Janszoon.
But on arriving in the new villages they started to use the name Vlieland.
Several members in the family started in different places.
As fishermen they could bring in their fish only to the place they lived.
So with a familymember in every place it was easy to swop.
The Meertensinstitute researched all Dutch names and explains them.
In 1824 Jerome Nicholas Vlieland is found in Great Yarmouth.
This part of the family uses the name even as a first name.
First the name was written as it sounded and that could be difficult.
Now in the golden age of computers and translating the name seems difficult to transcribe.
In different genealogy programs you can find the name spelled in different ways.
But Cleeland,Uleeland,Wheeland,Villeland all are "Vlieland".
And if you like to search online try this one.
In the family search you can go to record search (pilote)
(the link does not always work.)
go to discover your ancestors an then browse the collection.
Choose Europe.
And then England or Netherlands (Zuid Holland )
By chosing Norfolk you can find in the parishes some Vlieland names and by looking in Zuid holland as well.
And after all this you will be rewarded with a copy of the original.
Want to see the island Vlieland .You are more then welcome.
