The Hollimans of England, Part 7

 by Glenn N. Holliman

With this post, we conclude an exploration into the lineage of Lindsay Holliman of England, a distant cousin of most American Hollimans (various spellings) who shares our same ancestor, Thomas Hollyman of Cuddington, Buckinghamshire, England (d 1558).  Whereas my Hollyman forebearers left for Virginia in 1650, Lindsay's remained in England.  

In the 1500s, Hollymans were a prominent family.  One of Thomas's son, Christopher (d 1588 and my 9th great grandfather) married into the distinguished Lee family of Denton, Buckinghamshire, a family that acquired Hartwell House, now a National Trust property near Aylesbury.  However, whereas first born sons inherited real property, second and third born sons did not, so after several generations, these offspring became members of the commercial and laboring classes. 

Both Lindsay's and my paternal ancestors were those second and third sons for several generations in a row.  My 7th great grandfather, Christopher Hollyman (1618-1691) sought his fortune in Isle of Wight, Virginia.  If one will review the previous blog posts, one can read of the economic development of Lindsay's branch, moving from farm workers to commerce to academic endeavors over a period of several centuries.

With Lindsay's father, Frederick George Holliman,  a Cambridge University graduate, the family achieved the apex of academic learning in the United Kingdom.  George's  achievements and contributions to his country and the British Commonwealth are described below by Lindsay, his son.


Frederick George Holliman (1920 – 2001)

Frederick George Holliman in 1940


 Lindsay writes: 

"My father was born on 9 January 1920 in Cambridge and went to school and university there. A scholarship to Trinity College in 1938 launched him on his academic career and set its form. 

An attempt during World War II to join the Royal Fleet Air Arm was deflected into wartime research. That research mixed unconventional and dangerous work on flames and poisons and resulted in PhD in stereochemistry. He was elected to a fellowship at Trinity in 1943 and to a university demonstratorship in 1945. 


Below, Dora Circuit Holliman, Lindsay's mother.

He married Dora Circuit at the Bedford Salvation Army Citadel on 12 July 1945. They had two children - Lindsay in 1946 and Philip in 1950. In 1947 he left to teach at the University of Cape Town, South Africa (UCT) and was made professor of organic chemistry 1950, aged 30. Later in 1955, he became head of the chemistry department and, a few years later, Dean of the Faculty of Science. 


During this time apartheid was being developed and Fred, along with others, was very active in trying to keep South African universities open to all – at Cape Town University he was chairman of a committee fighting the changes. 

 Right, Dora and young Lindsay, 1949.


Left, Dora and Fred in the late 1960s, back in England.



 In 1962 the family returned to England, living in Harrogate in Yorkshire where Fred was a professor at Leeds University. He retired in the early 1980s and eventually lived in Market Harborough, Leicestershire where he died on 13 November 2001, two months after my mother Dora." - Lindsay Holliman



Below, Lindsay and wife, Magdeleine, outside their home near Market Harborough, England.  Retired from a career in human resources, Lindsay is an avid golfer, playing as often as three times a week.  Will there be other generations of Hollimans in England?  Yes, Lindsay has two sons!


If an American Holliman has ever wondered what happened to those left in England by those who migrated to the New World, well, now we have one story of just such a branch of our family! 

My thanks to Lindsay for sharing his ancestral story and for his friendship across the Atlantic. - GNH

The Hollimans of England Part 6

by Glenn N. Holliman

We continue the biographies of the ancestors of Lindsay Holliman, who shares with this writer a multi-great grandfather, Thomas Hollyman (b 1558) of Cuddington, Buckinghamshire, England.  In 2014, DNA testing revealed our paper trails were correct thus tying the American Hollimans to Cuddington in the 15th Century and to Linday's English lineage!

Lindsay's family story is similar to the Holliman families in the United States in the 20th Century.  More and more persons in industrialized countries such as the United Kingdom and the United States left occupations in rural areas and migrated to the growing cities to take advantage of job opportunities.  Their children in turn acquired excellent educations and entered service professions. And alas, both nations and families would participate in two World Wars in the that century. - GNH

Below Lindsay and his wife, Madeleine, in their North Midlands home in England, 2014.

Lindsay Holliman writes:   

"My grandfather, George James Holliman (1889-1950) was born in Chelsea, London, England on 2 March 1889 and was christened there on 31 March that year. He was the eldest of four children, the others being, in order of age: Ada Eleanor Mildred Holliman (1890), William Thomas Holliman (1894) and John Alfred Holliman (1900). 

On 28 October 1908 he married Florence Howlett in the Registry Office at Littleport, where the family were staying at the time, she being a native of that town. By the 1911 census they had moved to Cambridge, the great university city.  George had the the splendid job title “horse keeper for job master” – i.e. he looked after the horses for someone who hired out horse-drawn carriages for domestic use. George was an accomplished cornet player in the Cambridge Salvation Army Band and by 1914 he had become bandmaster. 

George is front row, left in this 1910s band. 

 
 And then World War I happened.




By 1916, he was in Bologne, France driving Salvation Army ambulances, and he did this until his service was terminated on 28 January 1919.  

After the War, he and his brothers helped their father, James, in the family hardware business as it was at the time. The brothers worked in the business all their working life (photograph below ca 1928). The business  eventually wound up in about 1970 when John Alfred Holliman retired.

  George and Florence with Emma, Florence's mother in the 1930s in Cambridge.



George and Florence had two children – Irene Mildred and Frederick George Holliman. Florence lost two brothers in WWI – Frederick (after whom my father was named) at Rouen and William at Flanders.  George died suddenly during the night of 3 December 1950 and was buried on 7th December.  - Lindsay Holliman

In a future post, the conclusion on this English Holliman family, cousins of almost all Hollimans (various spellings) who live in the United States. One Christopher Hollyman migrated to Virginia in 1650; other Hollymans remained in England.

An Archive of Holliman Family Materials



A Collection
of Holliman and Associated Families Materials 
assembled by Glenn N. Holliman
as of 28 March 2015

This writer has been in communication and visited with Phil Upchurch, a superb genealogist of his family's history whose stories closely parallel the Hollimans, both families from Tidewater Virginia and the Piedmont of North Carolina.  Discussions are underway with his organization, Allied Families, to create a virtual archive of our mutual families and others, which would allow for the storage and the immediate downloading of materials such as listed below of the Holliman families.

Until that day comes, I list below an archive of scanned Holliman and associated family manuscripts and research made available by Maxine Wright, Joe Parker, Bob Hollyman-Mawson, Bishop Holliman, Anne Holmes, Sarah Holliman Hatch, Lindsay Holliman and others; plus the  late Walt O. Holliman, Cecil R. Holliman and Rhodes B. Holliman.  These are mainly of Alabama and Texas families and their ancestors from the Carolinas, Virginia and England. Materials vary from one page to 200. 

From time to time, I scan and upload additional materials.  I post announcement of scanned materials on future blogs at http://hollimanfamilyhistory.com/ .  Happy to add your research to the list.  Bear in mind some of this writing is 20 to 50 years old and has been super ceded by new research in the Internet age.

Happy to send these materials by email and insure their research is available to present and future generations.  Contact me at glennhistory@gmail.com.  My thanks to cousins who continue to make their findings available!
