Origin of the Name Ireland

The origin of the name Ireland was found in the archives. Meaning 'of Ireland ', the name Ireland is a locational name meaning a person from Ireland . This name was borne by early emigrants from Ireland who thus acquired the Norman name of 'de Yrlande'. This name is of Anglo-Norman descent spreading to the Celtic countries of Ireland , Scotland , and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout these countries. Examples of such are a Simon de Irlande, from County Oxfordshire, who was recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls' in the Year 1273. A Margereta Ireland was recorded in the 'Poll Tax' of the West Riding of Yorkshire, England in the Year 1379. In Scotland a John Irland was a Chaplain in Wick, Caithness, in the Year 1530. A John de Irlande held land in Perth, in the Year 1424. In Ireland itself these names are mostly found in Counties Armagh and Antrim in Ulster Province.
The Ireland coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Ireland descendants.
