The story of the Hollyman family, starting in the 19th century in London, attempting to link London, Buckinghamshire and Sussex Hollyman families.
James Hollyman (Holliman in 1841) is from Cuddington. He is born about 1809, and sometime before the 1841 census, he is in Newington, London and then moves to Brighton. He is also married to a Brighton girl. What is also interesting is that in the 1841 census, he is listed as an Independant, which suggests he is living on his own means. Here is his life through the census entries:
The first possible clue is a James Hollyman (Holliman in 1841) from Cuddington. He is born about 1809, and sometime before the 1841 census, he is in Newington, London and then moves to Brighton. He is also married to a Brighton girl. What is also interesting is that in the 1841 census, he is listed as an Independant, which suggests he is living on his own means.
Sometime about 1841, thay are either in London or Brighton!! They appear to
be in Newington, in London. James is an Independent, which suggest he has
come into some money at this time (maybe from an estate).
In 1851, we have James & Frances Hollyman, in Brighton.

What I am now attempting to achieve is the coverage of an earlier London
street directory in 1832. This is unique, plus
images of the 1842 Robsons directory which confirm earlier entries and also
carry much more trade detail about a premises or person. Here is the index of streets in 1832, many with
1842 imagery added.
And next is the complete 1940 London street directory - this will take some months to complete, so bear with me!
