An Added Tidbit
The surname Irelan was first found in Stirlingshire, where one of the first records of the name was John Yberniens de Frertun who was a witness in 1288. Patrick of Ireland, was accused of housebreaking at Forfar, was hanged in 1296. David de Ireland was one of the Scots prisoners taken at Dunbar Castle in 1296, and cattle belonging to Walter de Ibemia were driven off from a moor near Aberdeen in the same year. Robert de Irland of Stirlingshire rendered homage to King Edward 1 of England in 1296.
Some of the family were found further south in England. The township of Lydiate in Lancashire is one such place. "In the reign of Richard II, this place was possessed by a family of the local name, whose heiress married into the Blackburn family, and an heiress of the latter conveyed Lydiate to Thomas, son of Sir John Ireland, of the Hutt, and Hale. The Irelands continued to hold the property until the latter part of the 17th century."
For a short period, Warrington, Lancashire was an early family seat of the family. The manor was originally held by the "Boteler family until nearly the end of the sixteenth century when the Boteler manors and estates were broken up and the Irelands, who purchased the principal share, enfranchised the subordinate manors of the fee. It was purchased by Thomas Ireland, afterwards a knight, in 1597. In 1628, however, his son Thomas Ireland of Bewsey and Margaret his wife, together with George and Robert Ireland, joined in selling the manors of Warrington, Orford, and Arpley, with various lands and rents, to William Booth, eldest son of Sir George Booth, Baronet, of Dunham Massey in Cheshire."
