1637 Richard Hollis b est 1637 of Virginia

Richard Hollis b. abt 1637


John Hallowes b. 1612-15 – d. 1657, married to Restitute Tew




(Verified Siblings – Children of Maj. John Hallowes):
Restitute Hollowes b. abt 1633 and d. abt 1687 m. John Whestone in 1660 (confirmed child – Jan 10, 1655 transaction and other docs)
John Hollowes b. abt 1634 – (confirmed child Jan 10, 1655 transaction)
Samuel Hollowes b. abt 1636 – (confirmed child June 10, 1657 transaction)
William Hollis b. abt 1642 adn d. 1704 – (likely child – is an heir.   After Maj. John Hollis’ death, on Dec 9, 1662, William receivs John Hollis’ 3900 acres in Westmoreland Co, Va)

(Possible Siblings):
Henry Hollis b. 1649 and d. 1688 – (Note: Possible child of Maj. John Hollis – the correct age, and is a servant of John Grammer – likely an apprenticeship. Henry Hollis would have been about 7-8 years old when Maj. John Hollis died. Henry Hollis ends up marrying John Grammer’s widow after he dies, so he must be around the same station in life for her to marry him).
Richard Hollis b. 1637 – possibly child
(Note: No verification he is a child of Maj John Hollis, but he is the correct age, in the correct area of Virginia, and has the same surname, so worth investigating).
Boaz Hollis b. 1648 – possible child (Note: Boaz Hollis would have been about 9 yrs old when Maj John Hollis died. He may be child of Maj John Hollis, but there is no verification)
Lucy Hollis est. birth abt 1640-45 – possible child (Note: Transp to land adj Maj John Hollis by Whetstone husb of Restitute Hollis Jr, having the same surname, being about the correct age, and in Virginia about the same time  likely related, possibly child)

(Other Possible Relatives):
Burr Hollis 1630-38 – possibly related (Note: was paid for his “time” out of John Hallowes estate)
Thomas Hollis est. birth 1626 or before – possibly related (speculative if even related – too old to be his child – age appears more in line with sibling or cousin – need to look at his relationships to see if possible he has any connections to Maj John Hallowes).
Robert Hollis b. 1629 or before – possible relative (Note: No indication of any relation, other than having the same surname, being about the correct age, and in Virginia about the same time)
Edward Hollis est. birth abt 1636-44 – possible relative (Note: No indication of any relation, other than having the same surname, being about the correct age, and in Virginia about the same time)
Ann Hollis est. birth abt 1675 – possible relative (Note: No indication of any relation, other than having the same surname, being about the correct age, and in Virginia – may not be in same time period though).
