Guernsey Butchers : Woodland

Origin

Alfred Woodland was born in Netherbury in Dorset.He came to Guernsey in the 1860s with his wife Sarah and two young children, where they settled in St Martins. As well as being a butcher, he also was an innkeeper of the "Half Moon" at Les Caches, St Martins. He was allocated his own stall in the market in 1880. Although three of his sons had families and stayed in the island, none of them followed him into the meat trade.
