Notes for CORA BELLE DURLAND:

There are two dates for Cora Belle Durland, the one on the family page is July 23, 1900. The other is May 29, 1901.

The Durland name originated from Van Der Lind. After the English took New Amsterdam, New York, Pter Van der Lind went with other Dutch people to Nova Scotia and settled among the French, rather than to remain under British rule. Peter married Sarah De Mott (Mothe) of French Huguenot extraction. Their grandson, (born in 1803, died Oct 17, 1869), married Julia Maughan of England, (born in 1807, Died August, 1884).

Frank Durland's great grandfather, Dr. Henry Maughan, took his bride to Grimsby Abbey, England. (Grimsby Castle).

One of the Durland's married a man by the name of Leander Crooker which is distinctly English, tracing back to the Crookers of Lemiham in the County Devon, where the family was settled at the time of the Norman Conquest. Leander was born in Liverpool, Nova Scotia in 1837. He was the fourth child in a family of seven.

There were seven generations of doctors in the family.
