Extracts of all the GODSLAND entries (including the variants GOSLAND & GOSSLAND) from various vital records indexes, censuses, and probate indexes have been made since the One-Name Study was started in 1991. These have now been made available on the Guild Electronic Archive on the Guild of One-Name Studies website, where you may search by forename (including wild cards), surname variants, time period and/or registration district and other parameters.
