Father of Samuel GARLAND
William is my earliest Garland at present. I only have his name through the wedding certificate of his son Samuel GARLAND, where he is described as a Beadle, and the 1841 and 1851 Census.
Bentley's directory of 1840/41 gives a William GARLAND as Guildhall Keeper, a similar occupation, in Diglis Street, Worcester.

The age differences of 17 and 15 years for two census 10 years apart show some of the difficulties experienced when trying to trace ones ancestors.
