Welcome to the boards, heather.

Could you say where you are looking for the records- on genes?
And who are you looking for?

Thank-you

It could be mistranscribed.
Have you tried variants ?

Gateland does not show up very often for other years, so perhaps people claim they come from slightly different places nearby?

Is this a person's name?

Or a place?

And where are you looking?

As the poster's surname is Gateland, then presumably it is the surname she has lost.

I put it in a search as a place, and no Gateland as a place showed in 1871 on ancestry, but it did for other years. The word 'land' made me think it would be a place, and then a stab in the dark.

I will leave just so others not misled.

Possibly under Gatland?
