The origin of the name Rutland is controversial and hotly debated. Some say it is named after a local landowner called Rota who owned a large estate in the area.

Others say that the name stems from the rich red colour of the soil which is found here and that over time the name became Rutland. Unfortunately, it looks set to remain a mystery, as there is no conclusive evidence to prove one story or the other.
