LITHERLAND Family History

This is a medieval English locational surname. It originates from the ancient parish of Litherland, near the city of Liverpool, in the county of Lancashire. In the 21st century Litherland is divided into Uplitherland and Downlitherland. It is first recorded in the famous Domesday Book of 1086 as Liderlant, and as Litherland in the Fines Court rolls of Lancashire in the year 1212. This was during the reign of King John of England (1199 - 1216). The derivation is from the pre 7th century Norse word "hlithar" meaning a slope, with the suffix "-land", to give the meaning of an estate on sloping land.
