It could well be that we have two Thomas's born around the same time - my Thomas seems to be a relatively wealthy Corn Factor.  He is recorded as a benefactor for some 'bare knuckle boxers'.  He is also recorded as a 'gentleman' and an 'Officer of the customs'.
Any assistance with this family is appreciated.  I would like to prove if they are associated with the Hertfordshire Hollingsworths....or not.

Hi Alan,

Have you thought of a general Hollingsworth search in the 1851 census for Hertfordshire! There won't be many Hollingsworths but it could give you some ideas. I know there were Hs in Hitchin and Royston.

Don't think Winder is a Hertfordshire family. Out of interest had a quick look in the 1881. Only 3 Winders in the whole of Herts.

HALS has a nice handful of entries in their "online names" facility

https://www.hertsdirect.org/ufs/ufsmain?ebz=3_1384157226911&ebd=0

As there are some "Hollingworth" names there, then I would suggest being creative with the search name.
No need to put a year range in, there aren't THAT many (250-300?)

Thanks. The Winders came from Berkshire rather than Hertfordshire. When Jemima Hollingsworth married, the surname obviously changed, and so my connection with the Hollingsworth ends in the late 1700s. After that the family moved to Buckinghamshire. It would be interesting to search for links back in Herts, but they wouldn't be in my direct line at all. Something for the future, when I've sorted out my own direct family line (famous last words)!! Thanks for the suggestion. Alan

Hi, I also have a Thomas Hollingsworth (5x great grandfather) born in 1748 Benington, Hertfordshire.  It would appear that his parents were John Hollingsworth (a butcher!) and he was married to Sarah Coulson.
 My Thomas Hollingsworth however appears to have died in St Andrews workhouse aged 76 in Hertford and his wife Martha, who I can find no marriage to whatsoever, was also buried in the same graveyard in Hertford.  Middle names of their children, Morley & Pedley, throw up no help whatsover but assume they are family names as used several times !!

Catching up with the Hollingsworths!

I now have the Thomas Hollingsworth born in 1748 with this detail:

Marriage

13 Feb 1772 • Ware, Hertfordshire, England

Martha Morley


So, if that is correct then Martha's maiden name was MORLEY.

Have you got the names of their children?  I have this Thomas as my 1st cousin 8x removed (and the surname Coulson is used as the middle name for another Hollingsworth butcher in London: Ralph Coulson Hollingsworth!
