The Lands in America

Children of the Marriage of John Land and Mary Dyson in America

John Land had six children by his first marriage:

  • Two of the children of the first marriage went to "America":
    • Samuel Land (born 1843), his wife, Mary Ann Law Land (the sister of his stepmother, Lydia Law), and their children immigrated to Philadelphia in 1871 where they remained. Note: Samuel was not listed in either the 1870 census in Philly or the 1871 census in England.
    • William Land (born 1847) immigrated to Philadelphia sometime between 1871 and 1873 and returned to England by 1875. William was listed in the 1871 census in Batley, England so the earliest he could have gone to Philadelphia was sometime after the census was taken in March or April of 1871. William Land was listed in the 1881 census Batley, England. The listing included:
      • A son, Benjamin, born in "America" circa 1873
      • A son, John W., born in Batley circa 1875.
      Since, William had to have returned by the end of 1875 or early 1876, when John W. was born, the longest he could have been in "America" was 4 years. William was between the ages of 23 and 25 and married when he went to "America". See John Land and his family.
  • Two of the children of the first marriage remained in England:
    • Charles Land (born 1852) was listed in the 1891 and 1901 censuses in Keighley. See John Land
    • James Dunford Land (born 1855) was listed in the 1901 census in England. See John Land
  • I do not know what happened to the remaining children of the first marriage:
    • John (born 1841)
    • Elizabeth Ann (born 1849) Note: She may have immigrated to Philadelphia. Elizabeth Land was a sponsor at a baptism in St Timothy's in Manayunk in 1884.

Note: I have not been able to find records for immigration to Philadelphia from 1871 to 1875. The indexes for immigration do not start until 1883.

Children of the Marriage of John Land and Lydia Law in America

  1. Law Land, the first son of the marriage of John Land and Lydia Law, immigrated to Toronto, Canada, circa 1882, with his wife, Elizabeth Sykes and their infant son, Clarence.

  2. After John Land's death, his widow, Lydia, and the remaining seven children, Albert, Percy, Arthur, Harry, Adelaide, Polly and Walter, immigrated to Philadelphia in 1883.

Sam (Samuel) Land (1843-1930), the son of John Land and Mary Dyson, and his wife, Mary Ann Law, in Philadelphia

Birth: Sam Land, son of John Land, cloth drawer, and Mary Land formerly Dyson, 13 Cherry Tree Yard, Kirkgate, North District of Leeds, 16th January 1843. (Civil Record)

The witnesses were Thomas Pickering and William Buckley. (Civil Record).

Immigration:

Sam Land, his wife, Mary Ann Law and four children, John, Alice, George and Herbert immigrated circa 1872. This date is based on the fact that their son, Herbert, was born in England in 1870 and their son, Charles, was born in Philadelphia in April, 1873. In the censuses the family of Samuel and Mary Ann Land indicate immigration dates from 1870 to 1872.
