Etymology

Berrylands is a place-name that misleadingly suggests "land where berries grow". It actually means "land on a tumulus or hill", from Old English language ''beorg'' (modern dialectal "barrow" meaning "hill"), cognate with Old Norse language ''bergr'', ''bjorgr'' and ''borgr'' which mean the same thing, and Old English language ''land'' ("land"). The name was recorded as Berilendes in 1126, and as Berulind in 1148 (wrongly suggesting Old English language ''lindr'' "lime-tree" as the second element), and more recently as Barrilands in 1378, which shows the true origin as being from Old English language ''beorg''.

In a sense, the name corresponds to the modern English language "Hill Farm", a common name for farms (and some new House) across the United Kingdom.
