The Garland Family
The search for the Garland line has been complicated by the distance of relationships within the current generation. My grandfather was one of (I thought) twelve siblings - I have since discovered a thirteenth who died in infancy. Of those thirteen only three were male and in the following generation there were only four males.
Since the generation of thirteen, most of the branches have had only one or two children and my generation is now spread across much of England and an area of Canada. The lack of males in my grandfather's generation leads to only three "Garlands" in my generation of seventeen second cousins.
