A marriage took place on the 19/Aug/1822 in Lydlinch Dorset, of a Charles Garland (B) Abt 1798/9 Somerset and a Deborah Baker (B) Abt 1795/6 East Brent Somerset. All the Baptisms for their children were in Lydlinch ,Dorset between 1824 and 1837.Between 1841 and 1851 the family moved to Newport, Monmouthshire, Charles Garland died Abt 1880 in Newport, Mon and his wife Deborah died in Abt 1871 also in Newport, Monmouthshire. Any help as to the father and mother of Deborah and Charles would be very much appreciated.
