    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name primarily from High Sunderland in Northowram, Halifax (Yorkshire), but occasionally from other places so called, for example in Durham, Cumberland, Lancashire, and Northumberland. The placenames derive from Old English sundor-land ‘land set apart for some special purpose, private land, detached land’ (sundor ‘asunder, apart’ + land ‘land’). Compare Sunderlin .
