Surnames: BOYLAND
Here's the gist...I can't find my grandfather (John Boyland) on the 1901 census or the birth register. I presume his name was mis-spelt. I have already sent off for about 4 certs. 3 cheques returned and one dud certificate later...
He was born 28/10/1891 (military records). His dad, Patrick, was dead at the time of the 1891 census. So is his dad his dad?
His mother (Mary) was on the 1891 census but not on 1901 although 2 elder brothers are living alone named Bayland.
His parents, brothers and grandmother (Rose) are on the 1881 census in Liverpool.
There is a Scottish conection but Scottish checks have drawn a blank.
His brother was sent to Canada as a home child in 1894 aged 9.
He spent his later years as a ships scaler; would there be any records kept?
Just writing this has helped. I think I'll contact Nugent Care agency to see if he was ever admitted to St. Georges Industrial School like his brother.
Any more Ideas?
Best wishes to all, Ruth
