Origin: Baeckelandt: Origins of and Meaning of the Flemish Surname
Variations of the name BAECKELANDT:


- In Flanders family names became general usage in the 12th century.
- These were passed along from father to son of course.
- The Council of Trent (1563) required pastors to record family names when two people got married.
- But spelling was inconsistent even among siblings and between generations.
- The earliest record of someone being said to come from a place by the name ?BAKELANDE? is in a reference book on topography on western Flanders that mentions in 1231 a ?Coram Waltero de Bakelande and Waltero de Warenghen? .
- The earliest recorded mention of a surname kin is in 1281 under the form BAKELANT: Abraham dou BAKELANT of Avelgem .
- At Kortrijk?s ?Kasselrij? the archives mention one Walterus dictus BAKELANT in 1316.
- In 1368 a Jhan vanden Bussche is recorded as having changed his name to Jhan BAKELANDE .

- Later at Herzeeuw (aka Herseaux) in 1398 a Symon, a Pieter and a Hennequin BAKELANT were already well known in the province of Henegouwen.
- In 1449 one Jehane BAKELANTS, daughter of a Jans van CURTRIKE (Kortrijk?), is mentioned as a gatekeeper of Brugge .
- The earliest reference I am aware of with the spelling as we make it is the birth notice of a Rogerius BAECKELANDT, born in Tielt February 14, 1619. However, his children spelled their names ?BACKELANT? and ?BACQUELANT? underscoring the inconsistency of the written versions of names and contrasting with today?s legal enforcement of a surname?s specific spelling.
- The place name ?Bakeland? appears to have various origins. ?Bakeland? was the name of a feudal manor in Waregem and Deerlijk commonly recognized as early as the mid 14th century
- ?Den Bake? is also the name of a strip of land in Berten (part of French Flanders now) in 1541 It is also a district in Poperinge in the 16th century: ?houc de bake?. And in Wingene around 1550 in parishes north of the churches we find places named ?Bakenhof?
- To understand the meaning of the name we must break it up into its composite parts, ?Baecke? and ?landt?. ?Landt? of course means ?land? or ?country? or ?place? in English. ?Baecke? is more complex and has several origins.
- The simplest reference to ?bake? (the original spelling for ?baecke?) is ham or bacon in Middle Netherlandish (the language spoken in the 1200s to 1500s) .
- The other known reference to ?bake? found in Flanders in this period were to small poles or stakes, a few fists high, driven in as markers for shepherds on thoroughfares across cultivated fields .
- According to a 1996 Belgacom (the Belgian telecommunications monopoly) electronic map, there were 457 households registered under the ?BAECKELANDT? name in Belgium at that time.

Origin: Sukeforth comes from a Hessian Soldier who was captured and released during the revolutionary war. His original name was too difficult to spell (the name is similar to Zukenford) and the name was changed to Sukeforth. All Sukeforth's supposedly come from this one solder. According to one census there are 1250 Sukeforth's in the United States! This is all from a relative who wrote a family history which I read a few years ago.
