Most likely origin, from the Old Germanic given name Landric, land+rule.
A second explanation is given in Reaney and Wilson's "Dictionary of English Surnames": "worker in a wash-house". They cite the example of Robert de la Lauendrie in Somerset in 1278. I don't know what wash-house means - bath-house or laundry? Obviously the word is cognate with the latter.
