The Poland Family in Liverpool

This page lists those members of the Poland family whose origins we are researching. Entries in italics are inferred or uncertain, or have been supplied by other researchers and not personally verified by us. The list does not include children known to have died in infancy. Please contact Chris and Linda Warren if you feel that the family listed here is connected with your own research.

Most of the information found so far on this family relates to Liverpool and Glasgow, where we have traced our line back to John Poland and Janet Campbell. Records suggest that John Poland was born in Ireland and Janet Campbell in Pollokshaws, near Glasgow, but nothing is known for certain of their origins. The family moved to Liverpool around 1860. The surname was sometimes recorded as Polland or McPoland.

Many of the names below are linked to a more detailed record in the on-line family tree (people marked with an asterisk do not have a full record). When you click on a link, the linked record will be displayed in a separate window. There you can see the family relationships as we understand them, together with notes on what we have found in parish registers, census returns and other records.
