I am looking for anyone with connections to the Woodland and Findell/Findal families from St Albans before 1800.
Robert Woodland b. 1795 in St Albans m. 1814 to Susanna Findell b. 1797 St Albans. But an unable to trace Robert's birth with any degree of certainty.
Earlier records show Woodlands in Ware, are the two Woodland families connected?
Woodland is not a common name in Hertfordshire does anyone know where they came from?
Thanks
Derek

Although I have yet to confirm this Suzanne may be the younger sister of Elizabeth Fendell (change in spelling, b 1792) who married John Hull (my ancestor) at St Peters, St Albans on 23 Feb 1811.

Elizabeth's mother was also Elizabeth, who according to the 1841 census was living in Pemberton Almshouses with her granddaughter Susan Hull.

I think you are right this is what I have on the family but all except the marriage of Susanna to Robert Woodland needs checking against the actual parish records. I am looking for confirmation/coroboration what do you think?
I can send this as a text report if it's easier. I have had to cut out census notes to trim it down to fit the space allowed.
