Hollier


Hollier
Recorded in many forms including Holliar, Hollier, Hollyar, Hollyer, Hawler, Hawler, Holyard, Hollyard, Hollors, Hulliard, Oller, Olliar, Ollier, Olliers, and Oyler, this is an English medieval topographical surname. However spelt they all derive in whole or part from residence by either a holy-yard, that is a place of worship, probably a pagan temple, with "yard" being an enclosed area, or from living or working in a "holly wood". Holly, being a very hard wood, had many uses in the olden times, and the specialist growing of holly was a major industry. The fact that there are so many varied forms of the surname is testament to both the vigorous local dialects and the inablility of local clerics to spell anything but the most obvious names. There has been a suggestion that the name is Norman-French and in the form as Ollier or Oller, this in some cases, may be so. If this is the case, then it is a short or nickname form of the personal name Olivier or Oliver. Early examples of the surname recordings include such examples as Elsbeth Oliar, who married Richard Dod at St Antholin's church, Budge Row, London, on October 13th 1562, Maryan Holyard, christened at St Andrews by the Wardrobe, city of London, on July 5th 1576, and Isaac Ollyer, who married May Watkins at St Dunstans in the East, Stepney, on January 21st 1699. The first recording of the name may be that of Roberte Olyvyer in the Assize Rolls of the city of Cambridge, in the year 1260. This was during the reign of King Henry 111 of England, 1216 - 1272.
