For more about the parents and other siblings of John, Ann, and Martha Warland, see the grave of their parents Henry Saunders and Ann Warland (plus their brother Charles).
These are three of the nine children of Henry Saunders Warland (born at Hampton Poyle in 1820) and Ann Cooper (born in Yarnton in 1819) who were married on 13 December 1847 in Summertown.
At the time of the 1851 census Henry Warland (31), who was a grocer, and his wife Ann (31) were living over their shop at the south end of the Woodstock Road with their first three children: Sarah Warland (3), John Warland (2) and Ann Warland (six weeks). Their uncle Frederick was also living with them, and they were looked after by a 16-year-old nursemaid and a 20-year-old housemaid.
Their baby daughter Ann died a year later, and was the first to be buried in the earlier of the two Warland family graves:
† Ann Warland died at the Woodstock Road at the age of fourteen months on 5 April 1852 and was buried at St Sepulchre’s Cemetery on 9 April (burial recorded in the parish register of St Giles’s Church).
Their fourth child, Ann Elizabeth Warland, was born in 1852 just after Ann’s death and given her name; Henry Warland was born in 1853; and Mary Esther Warland in 1856.
Their seventh child Martha Warland was born in 1857, but died the following year and was buried with her sister:
† Martha Warland died at the Woodstock Road at the age of nine months in April 1858 and was buried at St Sepulchre’s Cemetery on 22 April (burial recorded in the parish register of St Giles’s Church).
Henry and Ann Warland had two more children: Frederick William Warland in 1858/9, and Charles Cooper Warland in 1862.

John Warland (born 1849)
John, who is buried with his two baby sisters, grew to adulthood and had a family of his own.
At the time of the 1861 census John (11) was with his parents over their shop at the south end of the Woodstock Road. Henry (41) described himself as a farmer as well as a grocer. He and his wife were still living at St Giles’ Road with John (11), Ann Elizabeth (8), Henry (7), Mary (4), and Frederick (2); and Henry’s brother Frederick was still living with them and working as a grocer’s assistant. The family still had a nursemaid and house servant.
His mother died on 2 July 1863, and his father married again on 29 August 1864/
At the time of the 1871 census John (21) was living at home with his father and stepmother and was working as his father’s assistant in his grocery shop.
On 4 October 1877 at St Mary Magdalen Church, John Warland (27), described as a wine merchant of St Giles’s parish, married Mary Carter (23), the daughter of the fishmonger John William Carter. They had the following children (with the births of the last three all announced in Jackson’s Oxford Journal):
- John Cecil Warland (born in the St Paul’s district of Oxford in 1878 and baptised at St Mary Magdalen Church on 25 October 1878) TWIN
- Edith Mary Warland (born in the St Paul’s district of Oxford in 1878 and baptised at St Mary Magdalen Church on 25 October 1878) TWIN

- Herbert Charles Warland (born at Avondale, Southmoor Road, Oxford on 5 September 1887)
- Katherine Sarah Laura Warland (born at Avondale, Southmoor Road, Oxford on 22 December 1890).
The couple were living in the St Paul’s district of Oxford when their twins were born at the end of 1878, but Mary Warland had them baptised in her home parish of St Mary Magdalen.
At about this time John Warland borrowed about £700 from his father, who later cited this as one of the reasons for his bankruptcy.
At the time of the 1881 census John (31), who still described himself as a wine merchant, was living at 21 Walton Street with his wife Mary (26) and their two-year-old twins, plus a servant.
By 1883 they were living in Wellington Square, and by August 1885 they had moved to Southmoor Road.

Her husband was not in fact dead: John Warland (52), described as a chutney maker who worked from home, was at the time of the 1901 census a patient at the Radcliffe Infirmary.
Their eldest son was married in 1903:
- On 9 June 1903 at Ss Philip & James's Church, Oxford, John Cecil Warland (24), described as a cycle salesman of 49 Leckford Road, married Louisa Mary Hewlett (24), the daughter of Edward & Charlotte Hewlett.
John Warland died at the Radcliffe Infirmary in 1906:
† John Warland died at the Radcliffe Infirmary at the age of 57 on 7 April 1906 and was buried at St Sepulchre’s Cemetery on 10 April (burial recorded in the parish register of St Giles’s Church).
At the time of the 1911 census his widow Mrs Mary Warland (46) was living at Richmond Road with four of their children: Edith (32) was a draper’s assistant; Francis (27) was clerk to the Official Receiver in Bankruptcy; and Margaret (25) and Katherine (20) were drapers’ assistants.
