About Richard Ryland (Rilande)

Richard Rilande was born c.Nov. 1587 and was christened November 9, 1587 in Quinton, Gloucestershire, England. He died c. 1650, also in Gloucestershire. He was the son of John Ryland and wife Maria (or Mary) Canning. He married Elizabeth Harward on December 4, 1611 at Bidford-on-Avon, Warwickshire, England.

Quinton became a part of Warwickshire in 1931. Prior to that time it was a village in Gloucestershire.

A note about names:

  • Many web trees give his name as John Richard. I believe this is an error. His father's name was John and his son's name was John, but, on his marriage record, he is listed at "Richard."
  • The surname "Ryland" has been spelled in numerous creative ways over the years. The branch of the family associated with Bearley, Stratford, and Birmingham -- and subsequently America -- has generally favored the spelling Ryland. The Sutton Coldfield line settled on the spelling Riland, which they use to this day. I have not found a definitive source for the spelling of the Gloucester line.
