Rosa Septieme Hollyer

Oriel Williams has contacted me several times trying to identify the ancestry of Rosa Septieme Hollyer who married Thomas Inglis in 1913 in Marylebone. She was the daughter of Henry Hollyer, a gentleman of independent means. At first I couldn't identify Rosa. Now we realise that she was Rosa Holyer, 7th daughter (hence Septieme) of Henry Holyer, butcher of The Pantiles, Tunbridge Wells. Harry Holyer had told me that she went to India. Indeed she did, but that was probably a red herring, as she returned in 1923. She died in 1974, in Poole, registered as Rosa Septieme Inglis.
