Kellands from Somerset and Devon

Hi Everyone,
In the 1990's I belonged to the "Kelland/Kellond Family Circle" who had ammassed information on hundreds of Kellands, their pedigree charts complete with dates etc etc.
This group had been started by June Bennett's "One Name Study" which she had begun in 1985.
Sadly, in 1999, Michael Stanley, the author and complier of much of the work, died.
In the many monthly booklets that were produced were details of members interests, census returns, parish registers etc etc all concerning the surname KELLAND and its various forms of spelling.
For some reason I never logged on to this forum.
My wife;s gt gt grandparents were Lavinia Kelland, (born 1818 in Chipstable, Somerset) who married John Aplin of Wiveliscombe 11.07.1851.
Her parents were John Kelland from Bow, Devon, (I think...because there are other John Kellands)who married Ann Budd in Chipstable 22.07.1828)
This John Kelland - who was born 27.05.1806 to Susannah Kelland (she had married the day previously to Richard Warren 26.05.1806 which seems exceptional timing!!) Why John kelland did not take the namne Warren I di not know?! Perhaps it is the wrong Susannah?

Anyway, if you are still following, Susannah Kelland, was christened 20.02.1785 at thorverton, Devon the 7th out of nine children to Humphry Kelland And Mary Vinsent who had married 11.02.1771 at Thorverton.
Due to the work of others, I can trace this line back several generations to

JOHN of KELLAND, Lapford, who paid the "Subsidy" in 1546

(This information was gathered by Walter R Kelland of Canada in 1984.)

I know copies of these Charts were made available to the following;

West Country Studies Library, Exeter
Somerset Public Record Office
Totnes and Brixham Museums
Society of Genealogists London
Genealogical Society of Victoria Melbourne.

Hope this helps.
