I have been researching my Boyland family for well over twenty years now,and in the beginning I used the services of paid researchers who would go to different record offices to look on behalf,so quite a lot of the informaion I recieved was from that source.I also used to go the record offices myself to search the files etc.Not forgetting Rootschat who's volunteers have been extremely helpful to me over the years,and one final source came from my cousin who painstakingly,and regularly visited the GRO in London in the 1960's,his findings were left to his son who kindly passed them on to me.My Boyland line I have traced back to 1540 and mostly all from the West country,however,there are records on the net to show that the surname was around in the 1200's from Richard De Boyland who was a traveling Judge,going all over the place,so no wonder the name can be found so widespread.
Researching--BOYLAND.
Area's---Portsmouth,Southamptom,Dorset,Devon,Somerset.
