I have been conducting a one name study of YOLLAND surname, and find that
YALLAND from South Brent area is also distantly connected.
The YOLLAND family in Brixham from about 1800 is descended from a John Yolland
born 1774 in Harberton, father John Yolland, mother Rebecca Ffoole.
IGI lists Rebecca YOLLAND bpt 8 Aug 1783 at Totnes and Rebeccah YALLAND marrying
John BOLDER in Brixham on 30 Oct 1808
Probable family:William bpt 8 Oct 1809 (re IGI)
Rebeccah 1810 or 1811 (ref 1851 Census* aged 40)
Mary Ann bpt 28 May 1820 (ref IGI)
* 1851 Census lists Rebecca BOLDER living with James H SPARK (29) & wife Mary
A.(29). Rebecca listed as "Sis" presumably "Sister in Law"
Also shown is John E SPARK aged 1m.
St Catherine's Index lists Marriage of Mary Ann Bolder to Samuel Hopping SPARK
in 3rd Qr 1850
IGI lists Samuel Hopping SPARK bpt 22 Jul 1813 at Brixham
and marriage of Robert SPARK to Elizabeth HOPPING 23 Apr 1809 at Brixham
Any further information on SPARK and BOLDER families appreciated
