Research on the Hollyman family can be found here as I add to the detail which I can find, and substantiate.
Richard Hollyman was born about 1800 in Bierton, Buckinghamshire, and married to Sarah Miles in 1829. They were later at the Dolphin, and also likely to have been licensees at the Harrow, Stratford. They had seven sons who were all licensed victuallers or working at public houses at some stage in their lives. Richard died aged 54, on the 3rd August 1854 at 16 Long Alley, Shoreditch; and his wife Sarah continued running pubs for many years. Their sons were Thomas born in 1830, William born in 1831, Richard born in 1834, Henry born in 1838, Alfred born in 1842, Robert born in 1845 and Joseph born about 1850.

By 1847, Richard Hollyman is probably living in Hunter Street, a dairyman, at the birth of his son, Henry. It is highly likely that he is at the Harrow, Stratford for a short period of time. By November 1849, the family has arrived at the Dolphin, Long Alley, Shoreditch.

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!
