My GREENLAND ancestors originate from Frome in Somerset. Thomas Francis GREENLAND was born in 1828 at Frome and married there to Mary Ann MOODEY in 1850. His parents were James and Lucy. Both Thomas and his father were stonemasons.
The name 'Flower' was given to one of the sons in each generation. At Thomas's marriage one of the witnesses was William Flower GREENLAND, my own great grandfather was George Flower GREENLAND and one of his sons was in turn William Flower GREENLAND. On the 1851 census in Frome there is a Flower GREEENLAND aged 85 bootmaker living with his daughter.
I would be interested if any researcher has come across this family or has any further information.
