Adriaan van Baarland or Adrianus Barlandus (1486–1538) was a Dutch historian of merit. He was born in the village of Baarland, from which he took his name. He studied at Ghent and Leuven, at which latter place he was elected professor of eloquence in 1526, after a stay of some years in England. He died in Leuven in 1538.

Besides some philological works of no great value, Van Baarland wrote a number of historical works, especially about the various provinces in the Low Countries.
