William (Jnr) was the illigitimate son of William Bland of Folkingham was born in 1785.

BLAND William (Snr) Blacksmith 1758: William Bland (Snr), blacksmith. Born 1758, in Folkingham, Lincolnshire, England. Son of John Bland mentioned above and Jane. The business of J & W Bland is listed in the Universal British Trade Directory of 1794. William died in 1831 leaving his tools to his son William. The business appears to have continued to be carried on in the name of William\'s Widow Mary. The Rectory Gates at Folkingham are listed as a good example of the work of the village Blacksmith. These were erected in the Georgian period and despite some suggestion that they were made by another Blacksmith Ismael Hammer, evidence has come to light that Mary Bland sold the Ironmongery and Smith\'s business to Ishmael Hammer in 1835. This provides strong evidence that the Gates were more likely made by John & William Bland. Contact John by
