More contacts

Sandra Fitzhenry contacted me through Genes Reunited about a Leonard Hollyer born c1916 who lived in Australia. This was Leonard Arnott William Hollyer (1916-1989), son of Matthew William Hollyer and Grace Lilian (née Moore). It now appears that Leonard married 3 times. The second was a Fuller and the third was also a Fuller by marriage, being the former wife of the second wife's brother. Got that?!

Elizabeth Warren contacted me about her ancestor Catherine Emily Hollier (1854-1943), daughter of Charles Hollier, who served with the army in India. Catherine's photo is shown left.

Edward Henry Spencer Hollier

One result back from the Poplar 'Marriage Challenge' is an 1858 marriage of Edward Henry Spencer Hollier to Elizabeth Yabsley. He was an engineer, son of Henry Spencer Hollier. But I've never come across either father or son before, or seen them in any census. Who were they?
