Several times blog readers ask us if the Vlieland-Boddy´s family belonged to the Vlieland´s as well .
Time to find out.
We find two brothers Clive Vlieland-Boddy and Martin Vlieland-Boddy on the internet and find the names of their children as well.
We contacted one of them years ago and he could tell us that the Vlieland part came from his mothers side of the family .
We found that the name Vlieland-Boddy is relatively new.
There was a name change as stated in the London Gazette

Issue 46021 published on the 3 July 1973. Page 38 of 66.
Clive and Martin are the sons of Edwina Amethyst White and Raymond Marshall Boddy they  married in 1951.
Edwina was the daughter of Samuel White and Charlotte M Carter.

Edwina Amethyst White married for the second time and became Edwina Harley.
When she married in Palma to Colin Shelagh Harley born in 1929 in Staines Middlesex.
He died in Eastborn Sussex in 1990.
Edwina Harley was the first one to open an English pub in 1964 in Torremolinos  
She named it The Gallopping Major.
And it is still there .
The song of the Galopping major

So there you have the Vlieland part of the name.
