Francis Paine Hill md Mary Edith Hollyer 1881

This conjunction of the Hill family and my own Hollyer family has been extensively researched down the years. Shireen Shuster, who is connected to this family, wrote enquiring about what I knew and already the exchange of information has been very useful. This line, which favoured using Hollyer as its middle name led to families taking the name Hollyer-Hill. Whether the Hill family really has connections to the famous Tom Paine, as the family folklore suggests, needs more rigorous research.
