More early Hollyers

Another Guild member, Colin Ulph, came across the following records at Tuxlith Chapel, Milland, in West Sussex.


28 April 1578. Thomas HOLLYER and Margery PACKE.

23 June 1578. Willm PACKE and Elizabeth HOLLYER.


13 April 1575. Joane HOLLYER.

Little is known about these Hollyers, who may be connected with other early records across the border in Hampshire at East Tisted. Other Hollyers in Sussex, such as at Petworth and Tortington, suggest that the name existed in small numbers in the 16th century in this part of the country.
