Re: WELLAND of Devon, England
George Welland of H.M.Customs was born in Bethnal Green London in 1781 not in Devon. George his oldest son was born in Stepney in 1808. I have today as a matter of interest obtained a copy of George Wellands map entitled "New Map of Railways" Also have Ralph Wellands map of Thames. As you probably know there were 18 Map & Chart engravers in the Welland family. I applied yesterday for copy of Dennis Welland,s marriage certificate of 1942 and presume this your father. My name also Michael Welland born 1938. Looking forward to hearing from you and exchanging information.
Regards Mike Welland
