Origin of the Name Rudland

The ancient history of the name Rudland was found in the archives. Rudland and Rutland are locality names meaning, 'of Rutland', Co. Rutland . This name is of English descent and is found in many ancient manuscripts in the above country. Examples of such are a Richard Rutland, of Co. Oxfordshire, who was recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England , in the year 1273 and a Henry Rutland, of Co. Surrey, was also recorded in the same year in this ancient document. Names were recorded in these ancient documents to make it easier for their overlords to collect taxes and to keep records of the population at any given time. When the overlords acquired lands by either force or gifts from their rulers, they created charters of ownership for themselves and their vassals. Other examples of this name were found in the person of a William Rutland, of Co. Surrey, who appears in record in the 'Register of the University of Oxford' in 1584. In Ireland these names were introduced into the Province of Ulster by settlers from England , especially during the seventeenth century.
The Rudland 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 Rudland descendants.
