Recorded in a wide variety of spellings including Hollindale, Hollindall, Hollindate, Hollendale, Hollingale and others, this is an English locational surname. What is less clear is where this place is or was. There are a number of villages whose names begin with Hollin, meaning the 'hollies' as in holly trees, with various suffix ending such as -worth, -bourne and -ton, but we have not been able to positively identify a 'Hollindale" or similar. This is not in itself unique, at least one thousand British surnames are known to originate from now totally 'lost' medieval places, of whom the only public reminder in the 20th century is the surname itself. In this case we have a large number of recordings in the diocese of Greater London. These include Thomas Hollingall, who married Elizabeth Turner, at St Mary's church, Kensington, on June 26th 1597, Phebe Hollingale, who married John Cottrell at the famous church of St Mary-leBone, Marylebone, on November 5th 1789, and Edward Hollindale, whose daughter Sophia was christened in the chapel of Dulwich College, London, on October 20th 1798.
