MEDLIN Family HistoryRecorded as Medland, and the dialectals Medlen, Medlin and Medling, this is an English topographical surname. It derives from the Olde English pre 7th Century word "maed", meaning meadow, in Middle English "mede", with the Olde English and Middle English word "land or lin", meaning land. Topographical surnames are often some of the earliest forms of distinguishing names, since they used natural or man made features in the landscape, as an identity. Originally they were often found with a preposition such as "atte" or "by" or the Olde French Norman, "de" as in the first recording below.
