Name origin:

The Godsland surname is thought to be locative and come from an area in the parish of Cruwys Morchard, Devon known as Gogland.
C. Spiegelhalter in 'A Dictionary of Devon Surnames' quotes this origin for the name and cites Wm. de Goggalond, 1329; A. de Godeslond, 1332; & Rt. Gogdland, 1697 in support of this assertion.
