The two marriages listed could represent a first marriage for John Land (to Mary
Tunstall). The death of Mary Tunsdall Land. Then a second marriage of John Land
(to Sarah Myers).
The marriage of my John Land to unknown most likely occurred in another parish.
Two possibilities are:
John Land of Outwood in the Parish of Wakefield and Eleanor Thorp of the Parish
by license 14th December 1758. He signed. She made her mark.
Methley, St Oswald 1758.
They did NOT have children baptized in Methley Parish.
- John Land (1734) was from Wakefield Parish.It is the right time frame for the marriage of John Land (1734)
- It cannot be John Land married to Sarah Myers, later moved to Weston. Among other things
the signature is completely different.
- Children were born in the parish in the right time frame.
- Charles Land, the son of John Land (1734) moved to Leeds before 1797. Eleanor Land was buried in Leeds in 1781.
There is no age given at this death but Eleanor was an adult as indicated by the
lack of qualifying information.
Eleanor was a very unusual name in the Yorkshire records for the time.
In fact the marriage in Methley and
death in Leeds are the only two records I can find for the name, Eleanor Land,
connected with either Leeds or Wakefield in the correct time frame.
However, the death of a wife of any
John Land could have been
listed as the "widow Land"
if she died after John Land.
- Outwood is a village north of the city of Wakefield. Outwood and
Woodside are very near each other or may even be the same as each other.
Methley is a village and
Parish north west of Wakefield. Woodside is the area that John Land 1730 (married to Sarah Myers)
was connected to by virtue of his birth and his
sibling's places of residence. My Lands were from Alverthrope/Thorns/Westgate not Outwood/Woodside.
On the other hand,
I have found plenty of marriages where one or both spouses are said to be from
a given place
and in fact the marriage is the only record that occured in that given place.
- Eleanor was not a name that appears in later records for Lands.
- There does appear to have been three John Lands in Wakefield having children between
1759 and 1774.
- They may not have had children baptized in Wakefield.
Notes: No record of baptism of Eleanor (or any other Thorp (or Throp) children) in
Methley in the appropriate time frame. NO other Thorp marriages in Methely.
Methley St Oslwald Records on Ancestry.com as of July 2011 seem to start in 1754. The records actually go back to the
- John Land to Sarah Tollson Batley Parish February 26 1754.
They did NOT have children baptized
in Batley parish.
There are a smattering of Land records in Batley parish at the time - mostly marriages
and deaths which could indicate a family of nonconformists.
The Children of the John Lands Baptized Between
1761 and 1774 All Saints, Wakefield
The baptismal records in Wakefield at the time in question are rather vague and no mothers were listed.
Using later records I have determined the spouse of one of the John Land - which was Sarah Myers.
However, I do not know the
name of the spouse of the other John Land (maybe more that one other).
Connecting information to Sarah Myers makes in
to determine to some extent who
were NOT the parents of Charles Land (and several other
children born between 1761 and 1774).
There were 18 children connected with the John Lands in Wakefield between
1761 and 1774. The list of these children was taken from the baptismal and burial
records in All Saints Parish, Wakefield
and the parish of Weston.
Unfortunately, neither the mother's
name nor the father's occupation was listed for the Wakefield records .
The "residence" was listed for only 10 times. In 8 instances "W" was entered.
"W" could have had
multiple meanings: Woodside, Wrenthorpe, Westgate.
Unfortunately including the two places the John Lands lived - Woodside and Westgate.
John Land (who married Sarah Myers)
was from Woodside, an area
north of Wakefield proper. It was a rural area. Several of their children were
listed as "farmers" after the family moved to Weston.
The other John Land had connections to Westgate, Alverthrop and Thorns - Alverthorpe with
Thornes was an ancient township which included Westgate Common.
The baptisms for children of "John Land" appropriately start shortly after the marriages of John Land to
Sarah Myers in 1759 and, it should be mentioned, of John Land to Eleanor Thorp in 1758.
The records for the children of John Land in Wakefield All Saints and in Weston between
1761 and 1774 were:
Philomon Land** (1765-)
- Thomas of John Land on May 2, 1761
(no other information). I do not know what happened to Thomas. There
was a marriage in 1786. But there were four Thomas born in the parish between 1748 and 1761.
- Jno of John Land on March 28, 1762 (no other information).
Burial: John was most likely the son of John of "W"
buried January 1, 1765.
Note: Thomas and Jno were born too close together to be siblings.
Indicating that there were already TWO John Lands having children by 1762.
- Joseph** or * of John Land of "W", baptized on March 26, 1763.
- Joseph* or **, of John Land of "W", on August 11, 1764.
The births are fairly close and most likely these two Josephs
were not siblings. One of these Josephs was the child of Sarah Meyers.
Notes for the Joseph Lands born 1763 & 1764:
One of the Joseph Lands
married Mary Young on April 14, 1788 in Weston. He was listed as a farmer. They both signed. Philemon Land was a witness.
They had several children born in Weston: Sarah, 1789, John 1792,
Thomas 1794, Philemon 1797 and James 1800 (IGI). They were listed in the 1841
census in Weston of independent means. Joseph Land of Gargrave Weston
died December 31, 1845 age 82.
- One or the other of these "W"s must mean Westgate.
- I have not found the second Joseph in later records.
- William✟ the son of John Land, buried December 20, 1764
(No other notation).
His baptism was not listed in the BT between 1759 and 1764.
- There were frequent records of this type when a child died very shortly after birth
- The baptism was either not recorded in the original register or not transcribed to the BT
- This could NOT be William the son of John Land born in 1747. He married and had children.
Philemon of John Land of "W", on January 19, 1765.
(mother, Sarah Meyers, as shown by later records)
Marriage: Philemon Land, wine merchant, married Ruth Chadwick, spinster,
23 April, 1789, Leeds St Peters. Both signed.
See Philomen Land under Queen Street Chapel, Leeds
Note He named his first son Philemon Meyer Land. He was
clearly the son of Sarah Meyer.
Henry, of John Land of Thornes, on May 12, 1765.
Note: Henry is an unusual name. This is the first known use
of the name in the Land family.
A Henry was born to A Henry was born to
James and Hannah Land in 1792.
I have no yet determined the genealogy of James Land.
No further record for Henry born 1765 or 1769.
NO death record between 1765 and 1769.
Ruth** of John Land of "W", on November 8, 1766.
(mother, Sarah Meyers, as shown by later records)
Marriage: Ruth Land spinster, married Thomas Skirrow, farmer,
May 19, 1788 in Weston parish Both Signed. Philemen Land witness.
Charles Land*★ (1767-) and Elizabeth Dunford★
Charles, of John Land of "W" on January 1, 1767.
Mercy** of John Land of "W", on January 7, 1769.
(mother, Sarah Meyers, as shown by later records)
- Charles was my direct line ancestor.
- NOT the son of John Land and Sarah Myers
as indicated by subsequent records
- He married Elizabeth Dunford in WAS on December 25, 1787. See
- This is the first record of the name Charles in the Land family. Charles was an
unusual name at the time.
Since the name "Charles Lewis Land" was used by subsequent generations of Charles Lands,
it is possible that this Charles was also named Charles Lewis Land and that his mother's
maiden name was Lewis. Using surnames as middle names was a common practice in Yorkshire and with the Land family in particular.
- The "W" is not a helpful designation in determining who this John Land was.
could not have been the
same John of "W" who was the father of Ruth. The births are too close together. Plus Ruth shows
up with the Lands in
Weston and Charles remained longer in Wakefield before moving to Leeds
Marriage: Mercy married Joseph Farmer in Weston on
June 9, 1794. Both signed.
Henry* of John Land of "W", on September 30, 1769.
Note: See notes on Henry above. No further record.
John✟ of John Land, on October 27, 1770 (no other notation).
Death: John, the son of John Land,
was buried April 30, 1773 (no other notation).
John*, of John Land of "Alv" (Alverthorpe) on January 6, 1770/71.
Marriage and Children: He has several connections to Charles Land.
He had children in New Zion Chruch, Wakefield. See
John Land of Alverthrope under The Lands in New Zion
in the late 1700s, below.
He is a potential sibling of Charles Land.
Sarah of John Land November 30, 1771 (no other notation). One of the two Sarah
baptized in Wakefield All Saints (1771 & 1774) was the daughter of
Sarah Meyers as indicated by later records. Note:
This birth is TOO close to
John January 1770/71 and to Christopher April 1772, suggesting three John Lands in Wakefield at the time.
the son of John Land, on April 18, 1772 (no other notation).
Possibly the son of Sarah who had a brother named Christopher - an unusual name.
Death: Christopher, the son of John Land, was buried on April 23, 1773 (no other notation).
Catherine Land and William Almgill
Birth: Catherine , the daughter of John Land, on December 25, 1773
(no other notation).
More on Catherine Land:
married in Wakefield and then moved to Leeds
Marriage: Catherine Land of the parish of Wakefield
married William Almgill of the parish of Leeds, by banns. Both signed.
6 May 1799 in Wakefield All Saints (WASPR)
- Mary Land Almgill of William Almgill, Petersgate, 30 June 1800 St
Peters, Leeds. Note This was their presumed first child. Why was she named "Mary Land"?
- Robert 16 May 1802 of William Almgill, Petergate, St Peters, Leeds
Marriage: Robert Almgill, hairdresser, Mary Mitchell, spinster,
05 May 1822, by banns both of the parish, both signed. St Peters Leeds
Sarah of John Land on February 26, 1774 (no other notation).
One of the Sarah Lands married John Forrest in Weston in 1799
John Forrest of Weston to Sarah Land of the parish by license. He signed.
She x'ed. witness Jospeh Land. 10 April 1799
They were listed in the 1841 census in Weston,
both age 60 of independent means.
James**, the son of John, was baptized in Weston in 1775 (IGI).
- William Almgill married Elizabeth Gledill 03 April 1793 in St Peters Leeds. William of Willaim Almgill baptized
23 Aug 1795 St Peters Leeds. William Almgill, hairdresser married Elizabeth Rowland in
Leeds St Peters December 29, 1805.
- No other children born to William and Catherine Almgill in either St Peter's Leeds,
New Zion Wakefield or Queen Street Chapel Leeds
- No Almgill in Leeds in the 1841 census
- No Almgill in Leeds in the 1851 census
Note: Subsequent records show that James was the son of John
Land and Sarah Meyers
of "W" in Wakefield who lated moved to Weston. He married Elizabeth Dixon in Adele
Parish in 1801. He was
listed as a farmer from Weston parish. He had children in Weston: John 1802,
James 1804, Sarah 1806, Joseph 1808
James 1811 (IGI), Thomas of James and Elizabeth Land, Askwith farmer September 1813.
All of the above records were taken from the Wakefield Parish records except where noted.
Notes on the parents of the 18 Land children baptized between 1761 and 1775
- I believe that there were at least two (perhaps three or four)
John Lands having children in WAS between 1761 and 1774:
I think the association with the New Zion Chapel is significant.
John Land (listed in the several of the records as being from "W")
married Sarah Meyers in Wakefield All Saints on December 12, 1759.
Subsequent records show that they moved to the parish of Weston no later
than 1775. Their known children (whose names are indicated with** above)
were Philomon (1765), Ruth (1766), Mercy (1769) and James (1775).
and Sarah Meyers were also the parents of one of the Josephs and one of the Sarahs.
It is possible that they were also the parents of one of the Johns and Christopher.
All of the records for Land in Weston are connected to this family.
- John Land who was listed from "W" and who was NOT the husband of Sarah
Meyers was the father of:
One of the Joseph of John Land of "W" baptized in either 1763 or 1764.
The births are too close together to be siblings. The other Joseph was the
son of John Land and Sarah Meyers.
- Charles of John Land of W baptized in January 1767.
I believe for several reasons that he was NOT the son of Sarah Meyers.
He was born too close to Ruth, a known daughter of Sarah Myers.
He did not move to Weston but stayed in Wakefield when the family of
Sarah Myers Land moved. He later moved to Leeds.
- Henry of John Land of "W" baptized in 1769 does not show up in further records.
His baptism was too close to Mercy's baptism to be a child of Sarah Meyer.
- Catherine of John Land December 1773 was born too close to Sarah to have
been siblings. She is a possible sibling of Charles Land. She married and moved
John Land listed from Alv and Thornes could have been:
The same John Land designated "W" at the baptism of Charles Land in 1767.
Alverthorpe with Thornes and Westgate Common have been difficult for me to
straighten out. "Alverthorpe and Thornes" was an ancient township
that included Westgate Commons. At the period in question the records for
kept in Wakefield All Saints.
Charles Land baptized in 1767 "W" and John Land baptized 1770 "Alverthorpe" (both the sons of John Land)
ended up in the same small independent congregation of New Zion.
The baptisms for the children of John Land Alverthorp/Thorns were:
- Henry of John Land of Thornes in 1765. He does not show up in subsequent records.
- John of John Land of Alverthorpe in 1770.
Note: The children of John Land (1770 Alverthorp) were baptized in
New Zion Chapel Wakefield between 1793 and 1801
James (1789) son of Charles Land (1767 son of John Land) was baptized in New Zion.
Also baptized in New Zion between 1811 and 1833 were children of William Land
- It would have been impossible for Sarah Meyers to have had 18 children in 13 years.
Some of the baptisms are too close together. For this and other reasons there
had to have been at least one other mother of the children of John Land.
- "W" was not a designation in earlier records. The Lands in the previous generation were from Woodside and Westgate both of which start with "W". Later Lands lived in Wrenthorpe which could also be designated with a "W". There may have been a Woodside in Wrenthrope as the Google map shows a Woodside Lane in Wrenthorpe. "Westgate" was the most populated part of the city as shown by the 1790 map.
The Lands who moved to Weston show up in Askwith (a village in the parish of Weston) in the later records.
The Wives of the John Lands
There were only two marriages listed in Wakefield All Saints
for John Land in the general time
- John Land to Mary Tunstal on October 7, 1754 in Wakefield All Saints.
NO children of John Land were baptized in
between this marriage and the subsequent marriage in 1759.
"Mary w of John Land" was buried in Wakefield April 23, 1756.
- John Land to Sarah Meyers in 1759. It is possible to
determine based on Sarah's siblings and
on the later records in Weston who several of the children of
Sarah Meyers were. See above
The signatures of John Land on both these marriage look similar. See above.
John Land the father of Charles Land must have been married in another parish.
Who was the mother of Charles Land?
I am quite certain that Sarah Meyers was NOT the mother of Charles Land.
Subsequent members of this branch of the Land family used compound names that were the
full names of an ancestor i.e. James Dunford Land and Charles Lewis Land.
The birth of Charles Land in 1767 was the first time the name,
Charles, was used b the Land family in Yorkshire.
The name Charles Lewis Land was used for several subsequent generations.
It is possible that Charles
Land was named for his maternal grandfather, Charles Lewis, and that his
mother was a Lewis.
In fact, there were several records for Charles Lewis in Wakefield over the years.
However, I have
not yet been
able to make any connection to the Lands.
John Land baptized in 1730 son of Samuel and
John Land baptized in 1734 son of John
It has been determined that there were at least two John Lands having
Wakefield between 1761 and 1774.
There were John Lands baptized in the appropriate time period:
I believe that my John Land (father of Charles) was the son of John baptized in 1734.
This branch of the Land family were in Alverthorpe/Thorns/Westgate.
- John the son of John of Westg 3 May 1734
John the son of Samuel Land, Woodside in 1730
John Land★ & Martha Eastwood
Baptism: No later than 1710
Marriage: John Land and Martha Eastwood 13 January 1730 WAS

Children: See Samuel born 1725, son of Samuel Land, Woodside below.
I am fairly sure given the Alverthopre address that the following four children were the sons and daughters of
Samuel the son of John born Westgate 1731.
- James✟ of Samuel Land Alverthorpe 16 April 1763
Death: James Land, the son of Samuel of "A" was buried November 8, 1763

Marriage: ???? Hannah Land married William Taylor both of the parish. Both made their mark.
Witness Francis Land who made his mark. WAS April 24, 1798.
Note : This would suggest a significant connection to Francis Land. What does this mean??
Probably not the daughter of Samuel.

Death: Judy, the daughter of Samuel Land was buried May 5, 1775

in 1818 in Rothwell. Since the sons of Francis have other connection to Rothwell it is
likely that this is the Francis who married in Rothwell.

- James Land was a witness to the marriage of John Land and Sarah Myers
in 1759. This was most likely not James born in 1740. He would have only
been 19 years old at the time.
Seven year break William, of Samuel Land of "Wood", baptized on April 11, 1737.
Sarah, of Samuel Land of "Wood" baptized on November 21, 1741.
Sarah may have married either Thomas Copley in 1760, Wakefield All Saints or
John Longley in 1765 Wakefield.
|The signature of John Land
from the marriage of Samuel Land in
signature is from the marriage of Samuel Land to Ann Sunderland
in Wakefield All Saints in 1755 - a significant
between John and Samuel. I do not think it is the same signature as
that of John Land (married to Sarah Myers). While there are similarities
the hand is much less sure.
This signature could be that of either the father or brother of Samuel.
The Lands in Wakefield All Saints 1622 to 1698
The "parish" of Wakefield includes the Chapelries of Horbury and Stanley which kept their
The records for All Saints included the town of Wakefield and the villages of
Alverthorpe and Thornes (In the township of Alverthrope with Thornes) and the villages of
Wrenthorpe, Stanley and Lingwell Gate (in the township of Wrenthorpe with Stanley). There are other
villages in the parish but the Land (in the earlier records at least) seem to be
associated with the afore named
The records for All Saints start in 1613.
The records are
supposed to be listed on the IGI from 1640.
I did not find any listings for Land until 1622.
The original research for the Lands in Wakefield was done several years ago
using LDS microfilms.
The LDS FHL has two versions of the Bishop's Transcripts for Wakefield.
The originals are very faded, poorly photographed, and hard to read.
A second set of records is a hand written copy made in modern times.
It is hard to determine when it was copied, but it is written with pencil
on the backside of paper that periodically shows a ghost of a business
logo showing through. The handwriting is quite bad and there seems to
be a lot of stuff missing. There is also an index of the parish compiled
by the LDS Genealogical Society. I have used all of these sources in
addition to the IGI for the information
on the Lands in WAS.
In 2011 Ancestry.com put up the
West Yorkshire, England, Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, 1512-1812 which
includs Wakefield All Saints. I am uncertain if they are the Bishops Transcripts
or the Parish Records.
The records for the Lands in Wakefield All Saints between 1622 and 1698 are as follows:
- William Land and William Land Junior
See Early Land Records in Yorkshire for baptismal records
of children of William
Land and William Land junior born in 1623 and 1633
- Richard "Lond"
Baptism: Unknown. Note: With a death of a first wife this could be the same person as the next listing
- John the son of Richard "Lund" was buried May 18, 1624
- Bryan, the son of Richard "Lund" was buried April 25, 1629
- Richard "Lond"
Marriage: Richard "Lond" married Ann Marynutt on March 4, 1633.
- Anne the (?) of Richard Land was buried September 4, 1632.
- John baptized on March 8, 1633.
- Ann, the daughter of Richard Land baptized in 1635.
- Richard baptized on October 21, 1637
Death: Richard "Lunde" was buried December 13, 1644. Note:
This was during "de peste" or plague.
See Early Land Records in Yorkshire for
information on Valentine Land (1609)
- Robert Land
See Early Land Records in Yorkshire for
More information on Robert Land
- Matthew Land
Richard, the son of Matthew "Lond"
was buried September 15, 1670.
Note: The name Richard could indicate a connection to
the Richard listed above.
- George Land
"An infant" of George "Lund"(?) was buried August 13, 1675.
- _____ Land
Susannah Land, widow, Westgate, buried December 20, 1698.
- John Land
John "Lund" married Ann Lee, October 24, 1715
There were no further records for the Lands until the children of Samuel and John born
between 1723 and 1745.
- Mary Land married Jonathan Batty in 1676. (From index).
- Sarah Land married Michael Sheard on August 15, 1688.
Wakefield Tax Records
Wakefield Land tax records are on LDS microfilm 1657876. Given the numbers of Lands
in Wakefield at the time it is clear that not every one in the town was evaluated for
land taxes. While there were some tenants listed there must have been many more people
who were not listed. I am not sure how this worked.
The following Lands were listed in the land tax lists in Wakefield
- William Land was listed with a house in the township of Alverthorpe as
both a proprietor and tenant from 1781 when this set of records began. By 1787
his holdings had increased to an additional two parcels of land that he was renting.
In 1787 the "widow" Land was listed at the same property. In 1788 this property was again
listed under William Land. The second William was most likely the son of the first William.
William Land was listed at this property until at least 1797. See William Land born 1747 and his son
William born 1771. The second William was a shoemaker and lived in Alverthorpe.
I looked at the 1787 and 1788 death and did not see a death for William Land.
- James Land was listed as a tenant of Mr. Gill at Dick Ings starting in 1781.
In 1782 there was a notation that this was "poor land". In the 1787 listing for
this property "John Land" was the tenant.
No date: Mr Hopkinson (proprietor), James Land (tenant), 1/1
Wakefield, poor land, James Land Land 1/1/91/2
- Joseph Land was listed as a proprietor and tenant for a house in Thornes
starting in 1797.
- John Land was listed as a tenant with a house in Alverthorpe starting in 1796.
- Henry Land was listed with land starting in 1795.
The Lands in New Zion Church Wakefield
in the late 1700s.
Wakefield New Zion
The introduction to the Wakefield New or Zion Chapel reads,
"The baptism Book for the Independent Meeting Place Wakefield.
Which was opened the first of January 1783 by Mr Gover Zach 6:13 and Mr Coken
who presented form Matt 18:20 for setting"
New or Zion Chapel Wakefield is on two LDS microfilms: 0828166 and 1657064.
Microfilm 0828166 contains the baptism of James, the son of Charles Land and Elizabeth Dunford,
and the introductory comments on the opening of the Independent Meeting Place
quoted above. It also contains four baptisms for the children of John and Ann Land and four
baptisms for the children of William and Sarah Land and several burial records.
Microfilm 1657064 contains some of the same information. The format is different and
some of the information is different. There were no Land marriages listed in either
microfilm between 1838 and 1852.
- Charles Land, born 1767 son of John Land and Mother Unknown
Baptism: Son of John see above.
Marriage: Charles Land married Elizabeth Dunford on December 25, 1787 in All Saints, Wakefield.
- James, the son of Charles and Elizabeth Land, was born August 3, 1789 and
baptized August 11, 1789 in the New Zion Independent Church in Wakefield (LDS film 0828166).
- This was most likely their first child.
- The name James Dunford Land was used by this branch of the Land family for
several subsequent generations.
Eight Year Break
Sometime between the birth of James in 1789 and the birth of Charles Lewis in 1797,
Charles Land and Elizabeth Dunford moved to Leeds.
- Charles Lewis Land
See Charles Land and Elizabeth Dunford
Birth: Charles "Louis" Land, the son of Charles Land of St James Street, was baptized
in the Leeds parish church on September 3, 1797.
- While the middle name was spelt "Louis" in this baptism, subsequent records spell the
John Land, (1770) son of John Land of Alverthorpe and Ann ______
Baptism: John, of John Land of "Alv" (Alverthorpe) on January 6, 1770 in
Wakefield All Saints. See above under Children of
John Land baptized
between 1761 and 1774.

Witness David Land.
Note: Rhoda is an unusual name. There was only one other listing for
Rhoda in the IGI. Rhoda, the daughter of John and Sarah Land
baptized on April 10, 1857
in East Knottingley.
William Land, and Sarah _____, Albrigg and Kirkgate, Wakefield
Baptism: Unknown, circa 1788.
He may be the son of James per an odd listing at New Zion.
No listing on IGI for son of James. Could be son of Thomas and Mary Land baptized WAS 1789.
If he was not a son of James or Thomas he would have been of the right age to be a brother or son of
Charles Land (1767). Charles Land and his brother John were members of the same congregation,
albeit at different times.
Marriage: Unknown, no earlier than 1808, Sarah. IGI has listing to Sarah Hirst in 1808 in Dewsbury (???) Willian
and Sarah were such common names.
- George circa 1811 per 1841 census conection to Sarah Ann, his daughter.
03 MAY 1809, 30 MAY 1809, Ossett Green Independent Congregational, Ossett, Yorkshire, England
son of William and Sarah Land (LDS IGI).
- "A child of William Land entered 10 feet
from the (pales?) April 9, 1829 (Microfilm 0828166).
"A child of William Land"
buried April 9, 1823, (Microfilm 1657064). New Zion.
Note: This most likely represents
the same burial.
- Sarah of "William and Sarah Land of Agbrigg, Wakefield", born on May 24, 1829 and
baptized on October 5, 1829 (Microfilm 0828166) New Zion. Only "Wakefield" is listed on microfilm 1657064.

1831 and baptized on April 12, 1831(Microfilm 0828166) New Zion. Only 'Wakefield
is listed on microfilm 1657064.
- Henry of "William and Sarah Land of Agbrigg, Wakefield",
born on August 30, 1833 and baptized on November 24, 1833 New Zion. There is a note
between this baptism and the one below it and I do not know which record it belongs to.
It reads, "Bap by Jn Bryce Liverpool"( Microfilm 0828166). Only "Wakefield"
is listed on microfilm 1657064.
Death: Henry, the son of William Land of "Kirkgate", was buried April 30, 1863 in "feet ?"
of ground. New Zion
Church Members for New Zion: (Microfilm 1657064)

general remark for William "died in the Lord, August 28, 1856"
general remarks for Sarah, "died in 1868".
Note: Their children were baptized in New Zion from 1829 to 1833,
yet they didn't become members until 1842. I have noticed this pattern in other
1851 census: Kirkgate, Wakefield, Holy Trinity
William Land, head, age 62 parson broker, born Wakefield,
Sarah Land, wife, age 61, born Wakefield,
John Land, son age 19, joiner, born Wakefield,

Sarah Ann Land: According to the 1841 census was age 6, daughter of George Land age 30, blacksmith and Jane Land age 30, plus another daughter
Jane age 2. Boston Lincolnshire.
Odd Record: The ledgers for New Zion are a little disorganized. The following
entry was listed in an undesignated category and I believe represents payment for
a burial plot and stone for William Land and family.
Mr. William Land of Kirkgate, son of James (?), April 30, 1843 10/6, 2 grave 10 feet.
The next line contains the entry, "Mr Wm Land, stone over same, 1/1/0".
(Note: 10/6 and 1/1/0 represent an amount of money.)
1861 Census: Sarah Land age 72 mother in law and Sarah A Land niece were listed
on Quebec Street Wakefield
with David Kenyor, age 32, tailor (master employing 2 boys) and Sarah age 31, plus 2 apprentices.
Miscellaneous at New Zion
There are several other records at New Zion
George Land died May 19 1858 (microfilm 1657064). There are three digits to
indicate the age which looks like "109". It may be 49. This could possible have been,
George the son of William and
Sarah and the father of Sarah Ann.
Margaret Land and Elizabeth Ann Land, age 16, of Queen Street,
admitted April 24, 1878. There was no age listed for Margaret. Under
General remarks, "Margaret Land died in 1887", no date, "Elizabeth Ann Land married
Lapier (?) December 18 (?) 1889" (Microfilm 1657064). Elizabeth Ann was born circa 1862.
- Marie Land, age 12, Cock Swan Yard, mill girl, admitted December 29, 1881.
There were two other "mill girls" whose address was "Cock Swan Yard"
admitted the same day. All three of them were dismissed "to John Street"
on August 3, 1882. It was a common cause of dismissal in the records.
