The Ballard Holyer family

Once of the oddest families to descend from the Kent Holyer family are the Ballard Holyers. Characterised by two generations of "single mums", this line seemed to use the surnames Ballard and Holyer interchangeably, so I have found it best to record all descendants of this line. Nicci Sime wrote to me updating one branch I hadn't got: the descendants of Doris Ada Ballard HOLYER, plus the birth and death certificates for Percival Leopold Holyer, one of the Ballard/Holyer family whose life in the Tenterden Workhouse in 1881 was cut short becuse of the effects of his premature birth.
