Dear Joanna: The information I posted was received by me from Cliff Holland of New Zealand. I was excited about this William George as he was b 1868 1868. He married Mary Hughes in Cty. Armagh and 1902 immigrated to New Zealand.
I married into the Holland family. Jack was a wonderful man and we have two wonderful children and 4 wonderful grandchildren.
Grandfather Fred Holland, s/o of Joseph Holland came to the USA in 1904 bringing with him wife and a daughter Josephine b in Belfast 1899. Fred had a brother William George, who I have a birth certificate for and nothing else. Have not been able to get a reply from Cliff about this person. You may contact him at
and see if he will return your reply.
I know who all other children married except him. Have two others that I do not know where they went after they married. Joseph Holland, the father, died in 1900. Holland House was sold in 1902 and after that the family scattered like seed in the wind. Much bitterness was in this family from what I have heard. Since Clive said they came to NZ in 1902 it made sense to me that they left Ireland after the house was sold in Belfast.
There is much to tell about this family and the wealth they had and it vanished. If you are interested will give you my story about tis family.
