This is s very old post, so I'm not sure if anyone will pick this up, but I am searching for info on a Peter Gartland, from somewhere in Ireland.

I saw these posts and wondered if he is related to the other Gartands mentioned here. "Peter Garland from Ireland, Catholic and Anne Young, Protestant, Edinburgh" were married at St Mary's Cathedral, Edinburgh 15 Nov 1814. Anne's surname was actually Younger, and I have seen Peter's with several different spellings.  They had 8 daughters: Anne, Mary, Jane, Margaret, Elizabeth, Catherine, Helena and Alexa and 2 sons, James and Peter. Peter snr became a Lamplighter for the South Leith Gas Company. They were slightly hard to decipher in the census records from another Peter and Ann Gartlan also living in Edinburgh at the time, and also Irish. Peter and Anne's daughter Anne later married Alexander Wilson and moved to NZ. Their son Peter moved to Australia (Melbourne).

I haven't been able to find any further info indicating where in Ireland my Peter Gartland the Lamplighter is from- if anyone could help I'd be very grateful.
