Re: Matthew Eland
Matthew Eland was my grandfather, my father, Frank Hopkinson Eland,(10/24/1893-7/30/71) was the eldest son of Matthew's marriage (3rd) to Emily Hopkinson. Their children were, besides my father, Doris Annie 1894, Emily Irene 1897, Matthew Herbert 1902. His second marriage to Sarah Franks was childless. Matthew's first marriage was to Frances Tetley of Stanningly Yorkshire. Children of this union were Mary Elizabeth 1866, Henry Tetley 1868, Frances Beatrice 1872, Hannah Eliza 1873, Edwin Earnest 1874, Florence Elinor (died in infancy), Ethel Evelyn 1880. I have extensive info on we Elands, compiled by my late uncle Edwin and given to my late father, but other than a notation that Matthew's father was John Eland of Womersley Yorkshire, a raft & timber merchant and his mother was Jane Corps of Whitby, there are no dates or other information.
