Markland Hill

Markland is a popular family name in Bolton, and the derivation may be from the Old English 'mearc lane' meaning boundary road. I'm grateful to Tony Owen baileyjohn@bolton107.freeserve.co.uk.dele.te for MARKLAND.RTF which is his current family tree including Markland. ( Email address needs correction remove .dele.te) Markland Hill is above Beaumont Road and between Ladybridge, Heaton and Johnson Fold.
