Hi Jill, Thanks for the mail, and I have a feeling that we might be related…somewhere! I believe that some of the family came here from Devon, but I can’t be sure. Anyway there are those in the family that might know and I shall make more inquiries. As for me I live quite close to you actually, I am now living in Blackwood after living for a number of years in Coventry, but I was born in Aberbargoed, where some of the Boyland family still live… I believe! Nice to hear from you and do let me know a little about yourself and your family. If there is anything you wish to know about me feel free to ask. You have my address but I don't have yours. Bernard.
