Matt,
There are a lot of Gallands/Gallants around. I am a desendant of Matthew Gallant and his wife, Hanna Fenno, through their son David, his son Artemas, and his son John Wesley (my grandfather). The name was originally Garland when the family lived in Ireland. When they became Protestants they were forced to leave, and went to France where the name was changed to Gallant. When they (the Huguenots) were forced leave there, some went to Germany and ours went to England. The first Gallants in America were James and Mary Gallant, parents of Matthew. Matthew's son, Isaac, sometimes signed his name as Garland or Galland,and the rest of the family took the name Galland, except my grandfather who took back the name Gallant.
