The family of Robert Kenneth Warland (1846 - 1932) - Migrant to the United States

Some of the information on this page came from Bill Warland, the grandson of Robert Warland.

Robert Kenneth Warland (1846 - 1932) was the son of William Warland and Emma Charlwood who lived in Woodstock, UK, just to the west of where many of Warlands were recorded living in the Oxfordshire area from the late 1500s.

Walter Warland (Robert's younger brother)

Robert's younger brother, Walter Warland, is believed to have migrated or been taken (employed by someone) to the United States. He may be the Walter Warland, aged 16 with the occupation of 'Boy', who arrived in New York on board the Rhine (2nd Cabin, not steerage, suggesting his ticket was paid by others) on 4 November 1867. There were no other passengers on the ship named Warland so it is assumed he may have been employed by someone. The name and age match Emma's youngest son and, as it is understood he also went to the United States, this may be him. (Source

A Walter Warland (1851-1943), possibly the same man, married Mary Elizabeth Jones (1857-1909) on 1 February 1877 in Norfolk, Litchfield, Connecticut, United States. They had the following children:

Note, George Warren DeWolfe should not be confused with the same person born 1914 to Marshall Eugene DeWolfe (the son of the famous Florence Kling (later Harding, wife of the US President)) and Henry Athenton DeWolfe. That George W DeWolfe died on 9 February 1968.

It is not clear why, but Emma DeWolfe then re-married, this time to Donald Grahame.
