O'Donovan-Iland or Iland

I am Peter O'Donovan-Iland born 1957 Essex,England
My father was Daniel O'Donovan-Iland 1920-1968 Born London, England
His father Daniel O'Donovan-Iland 1872?-1924 Born London, England
His father also Daniel O'Donovan-Island (note the 's') 1840?-1911 Born ?

This is an unusal surname and does not appear to have been a
combination due to marriage, at least for the last few generations.
The Iland part of the surname does appear to have been spelt
with an 's' at some time but was either an incorrect entry on a death
or perhaps it was removed in error. In any event I have little
knowledge of the origin of the name or indeed of the Irish heritage.
I have contacted The O'Donovan in County Cork, Ireland but he was unable
to offer any information the origins.
Can anyone offer any clues?
