Where does the Warland name come from?




Welcome to my collection of web pages about the Warland family. These pages, which are made up mostly of oral history passed to me by members of the Warland family around the world, originally started their life as a short book on the Warland family (ISBN 0731680685) collated during the mid 1980s in conjunction with Osie Moss in the UK. I had collected a large volume of information about Warlands in Australia and Osie had done the same for Warlands in the United Kingdom - many of whom had migrated to Australia. When the internet appeared in the mid 1990s it made sense to make this information more publicly available.
