Harry Mestear Holland
« on: Monday 11 September 17 20:29 BST (UK) »
I admit to being stumped with this name.....he was born in 1891, married in Swansea in 1924 but I have no idea where he came from......I have checked the 1891, 1901 and 1911 census but have drawn a blank.  Any help would be most appreciated  :)

Thank you all very much indeed for your help.....it is much appreciated :)  I cannot believe that I had looked at the 'Find my Past' website and missed the information - I note that the 'Mestear' part of the name was also spelt 'Mesteane'  ::)   Best wishes and good searching to you all  :)
