Warlands in Hertfordshire, from the 1580s

1580s - Hitchin

Hitchin is a market town with a population of around 33,300. St Ippolyts (also written as Ippollitts) is a town just south of Hitchine where other Worlands are recorded later - see below. It is located approximately 7 kms south west from the towns of Melbourn and Meldreth in Cambridgeshire where the Worland family was located. It is almost half way between that area and Oxfordshire where the surname is usually spelled as Warland. The relationship of this family and others (Warland or Worland) is not yet known.
