Warland families in Middlesex

Middlesex is a former county and now an area in northwest London. Warland families have been recorded in Middlesex since at least 1682 and possibly earlier (if Werland is a mis-spelling). The non-census information has been drawn from the following two sources:

The earliest person with a name similar to Warland in Middlesex is William Werland who was baptised in 1624 at St Clement Danes, Middlesex, England (Source: England, Middlesex, Westminster, Parish Registers, 1538-1912).

The earliest Warland that appears to be recorded in Middlesex is Thomas Warland, who was baptised in 1682 at St Martin In The Fields, Middlesex, England. (Source: England, Middlesex, Westminster, Parish Registers, 1538-1912). The following events are recorded in the years after Thomas' birth:

Census records

Census records provide information about Warland families living in Middlesex from 1841.

1841 census

None of the Warlands listed above appear in the 1841 census so no connection can be made between the two. Names are listed below in order of age, as no relationships can be identified:

1851 census

The 1851 census is the first to show relationships between individuals and this helps to identify families.

Gavin Warland (born 1804, aged 47) and Elizabeth Warland (born 1813, aged 38). Neither Gavin Warland, nor any of the children born before 1841, appear in the 1841 census anywhere in England. The family does not appear in the 1861 census either.

Edward Warland (probably Edward born 1815, aged 36) and Mary Warland (born 1818, aged 33). If it is the same Edward born 1815, he listed his relations as 'Ann and Mary'. Edward and Mary were probably married by 1849 and have one child recorded in the census. 'Ann' is probably Ann Warland born 1783, aged 68, and is probably Edward's mother:

James Warland (born 1815, aged 36) listed Mary Warland (born 1808, aged 43) as his relative. Mary may be his wife or sister; no children are listed. Neither appear in the 1861 census for this area.

Henry Warland (born 1820, aged 31) and Sarah Warland (born 1824, aged 27). Henry (who appears in the 1841 census) and Sarah appear to have the following child, born the same year as the census was undertaken. This family does not appear in the 1861 census.

The remaining Warlands cannot be further identified and are listed by age.

1861 census

The 1861 census also notes relationships between the various Warlands at the time.

Edward Warland (probably Edward born 1815, aged 46) and Mary Warland (born 1818, aged 43). If it is the same Edward born 1815, he listed his relations as 'Ann and Mary'. Edward and Mary were probably married by 1849 and have one child recorded in the census. 'Ann' is probably Ann Warland born 1783 (or 1785 in this census), now aged 76, and is probably Edward's mother. Edward and Mary's children are recorded as:

Charles Worland [Charles Warland] (born 1838 in Middlesex, aged 23) is listed as the relative of Georgiana Warland, who is not listed (but is shown in the 1871 census). Their two children appear to be:

The following appear to be couples, based on the relation shown between each:

The remaining Warlands cannot be further identified and are listed by age.

1871 census

The 1871 census shows a number of Warlands born in Middlesex but located in London, as well as one John Warland born in Oxfordshire and now in Middlesex

.

Charles Worland [Charles Warland] (born 1838 in Middlesex, aged 23) is not listed in 1871 but his wife Georgiana Warland (born 1833, aged 33) is. Their two children appear are:

The remaining Warlands cannot be further identified and are listed by age.

1881 census

The 1881 census shows the actual address for each person and/or family group. The following lists the families recorded in Middlesex.

Bethnel Green (London),16 Middleton St

Camberwell, 4 Frederick Place

Croydon, Workhouse Infirmary', Queens Road

Islington, 72 Frederick Street. George Warland, head of the household, first appears in the 1841 census aged 3, possibly the son of Charles Warland born 1811. Does not appear in the 1851 census but re-appears in the 1861 census possibly with a wife Georgiana/Georgina and with two children Georgiana and Mary. Does not appear in 1871 but his wife Georgiana does, with the same two children. Their daughter eldest Georgiana may have married by this point.

Southwark St George Martyr, 99 London Road. Harry Warland (Henry Warland) (born 1817, aged 34) is listed with Harriet Warland (born 1830, aged 21) in Surrey in the 1851 census. He may be the son of another Henry Warland (born 1798, aged 53) and grandson of Thomas Warland (born 1766, aged 85), also recorded in Surrey. William Rowe may be a boarder.

St Giles in the Fields, 16 Gt Turnstile Lincoln Inn Fds. It is not known who Charlotte Warland was, but the 1871 lists two other unplaced Charlottes; there may be a connection with those two.

St Luke, 30 Beech Street. Christopher Warland appears in the 1861 and 1871 census in Dorset.

St Lukes, 75 Bevenden Street. The Warlands listed below appear to be living with the Stannard family. Ernest and Elizabeth Warland were borh recorded in the 1871 census. The other Warland children are almost certainly siblings. Their parents probably had names that are similar, and were probably married around 1866 (and so born around 1830 - 1835).
