Research on the Hollyman family can be found here as I add to the detail which I can find, and substantiate.

A marriage exists between a Thomas Hollyman and a Jane Carter in 1825 at St Botolph. This Thomas hollyman was born in Bierton, Buckinghamshire about 1797, the older brother of Richard Hollyman.

If you would like to contribute the amazing new project to map London over the last hundred years and more, please continue to read. What is needed is mainly details of when a London street was renamed, bombed, cleared, or tidied. Pictures are the best way of expressing anything, and a picture tells a thousand words. Also needed is those thousand words, or even fity words. Anything will be brilliant. Please help out before the London skyline is transformed for ever. What is needed, just an email to the Email the London team. We can do the rest; and you also get your name on the site, if this is OK.
