I am researching the Bolland Family from Northern England.
My earliest is George Bolland of Sawley, Yorkshire, born in 1709.
They seem primarily to have been farmers, although, William, son of the above George, was a carpenter, as well as farmer, apprenticed in Halifax. His son Thomas is my direct ancestor.
Any information would be gratefully received.

Dear Lesley, I do not have the Thomas Bolland you mention, my Thomas was born in 1796/7, and his ancestors do not have a Thomas amongst them. Bolland is such an unusual name, who knows, maybe somewhere along the way we may end up connected?
Best of Luck,

Hi. I am also researching the Bolland/Boland/Bowland line. The earliest Bolland I have was born in 1819. His name was Philip Emery Bolland. I do not know who his parents were but I'm in the process of finding that out. If anything sounds familiar please let me know.

However! My mum may know alot more :) She has an interest in geneology.

My great-grandfather was Andrew Bolland, b. 1861 in Canada. He had a younger brother, Michael Bolland, b. 1863/1864 in Canada. They both were in an orphanage in London City, Ontario, Canada in the 1871 census. Might you be related somehow? I've been unable to find why they were in the orphanage, who their parents were, and what happened to them. Thanks.
