Siblings:

(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).

1659 August: The first land surveyed on this river was called ” Powdersby” and was laid out for Gothofrid Harmer, the Indian trader, August 29, 1658. This land was resurveyed for Nathaniel Styles Feb. 9, 1664, and called ” Warrington.” It lies at Lego’s Point at the mouth of Bush River. No mention of Bush River is made in the certificate of survey of ” Powdersby,” which is described as situated on the west shore of Chesapeake Bay ” near the month of a river called Gunpowder River.” This suggests the theory that Bush River had no name, to white men at least, in 1658. Claims have been made and are still made, that it is the river to which Captain John Smith gave the name of Willoughby’s River; but the meager remarks which the famous captain lets fall regarding the river he so named tend rather to identify it with Gunpowder River. No other lands were surveyed on Bush River in 1658; but in August of the year following several tracts were laid out on its shores, namely, ” Upper Eling” and ” Eling,” for Thomas Samson; ” Bushwood ” for Abraham Holman; “Holly Hill ” for William Hollis; ” Spry’s Marsh ” for Oliver Spry.

1659: It is uncertain where Harmer resided in 1658. The following year probably found him established on the Gunpowder shore and Oliver Spry, his father-in-law, on the Bay, in Gunpowder Neck. The claims of Holman as a first settler on Bush River can not be pressed, for the reason that, in 1659, he took up land on Gunpowder. There is little doubt, however, that Samson and Hollis established themselves in 1659 on the Bush River shore. Samson died without issue. Hollis has many descendants.

1661 April 25:
In the Archives of Maryland (Vol. Ill, p. —), there appears the deposition of Thomas Overton and William Hollis regarding a fatal encounter between white settlers and Indians which took place on the shore of Bush River in the year 1661. For the benefit of any reader of this article to whom the Archives may not be available I shall quote this deposition in full:
” The information of Thomas Overton and William Hollis sayth that about the 25th of Aprill last (1661) Thomas Sampson and Richard Hayes seeing two canowes with nine Delaware Bay Indians comeing downe Bnsh River, watching their canowes did discerne that they steered towards their plantation upon which the said Sampson and Hayes come and brought the informants news of their comeing. Soe upon that they took to their Boate and comes and mett the Indians and required of them whether they were Sasquehannough yea or noe, and they answered noe; and whilst that these informants were talking with one of the said companyes in one of the canowes the other
eanowe with the Indians went a shoare, and as soon as ere they were on the Shoare, one of the informants doggs seizes on one of the said Indians, and upon that the Indian turned him about and shott the dogg and kill’d itt, and immediately another of the said Indians that was on the shoare shott att these informants and there company, and the bullet came through the boate, then the said informants and their company shott at the Indians that were in the other canoe and killed five of them, that is all the Indians that were in that canowe, and further these informants say that the Indians on the shoare did kill one of their company called John Spurne and further knoweth not.”
The exact spot where this sanguinary event took place can not be determined, but there is hardly a reasonable doubt that it lay between the mouth of Abbey Island Creek and the south point of Eedmond or Terrapin Island Cove. The land called ” Holly ISTeck ” (the only land in William Hollis’s possession in 1661) lies either on the south point of Eedmond Cove or on the south point of the next cove below, namely, Button’s or Bar Cove. Thomas Sampson owned two tracts on the east side of Bush Eiver, namely ” Eling ” and ” Upper Eling.” The first named is situated between Abbey Island Creek and Bush Point.
The last named lies up the river a short distance south of Sod Creek (formerly Hunting Creek). It seems probable to me that Sampson settled on ” Ealing ” in order to be near to Hollis.
Sampson and Hayes could not have had far to go to inform Hollis that the Indians were coming. The language of the deposition is ambiguous where it concerns the course the Indians were taking when discovered, but it probably means that they were headed for Hollis’s plantation. The behavior of the dog in attacking a man as strange in appearance as the Indian must have seemed to him, was characteristic. Possibly the Indians came with no hostile intention, but the situation was tense and the action of the dog precipitated the fight.
Thomas Overton settled at an early date on Eomney Creek, but not before 1661. In that year he seems to have been living with Hollis. Eiohard Hayes appears to have been a partner of Sampson and doubtless lived with him, as he owned no land. Of John Spurne we know nothing. William Hollis took out letters of administration on the estate of Thomas Sampson, deceased, in 1662. An inventory was returned May 21, 1663. It contains one curious item: “two years service of an Indian Boy,” valued at 1800 lbs of tobacco.

1733 Nov: In November, 1733, a land commission was held on behalf of William Hollis to determine the bounds of the lands called ” Islington,” ” Eling,” ” Hollis’s Eefuse,” ” Holly Hill,” ” Hollis’s Chance,” ” Swampy Point,” ” Owlet’s Nest” and ” Planter’s Neglect,” all of which tracts lie together on the east side of Bush River near the river’s mouth. Before this conunission Thomas ISTorris, aged 84 years, testifying concerning the bounds of ” Holly Hill,” deposed: ” that about thirty years ago he was coming down Bush Kiver in a boat with Cornelius Harrington, that when they came against a point of land where this deponent now stands—which is on the river side near a marsh to the eastward of a creek or cove—he this deponent heard a Gun shot and saw a Bear fall from a tree and that the said Cornelius told this deponent that there stood a bounded tree of the land then in possession of John Parker tenant to William Hollis, father of William Hollis the petitioner, and further saith not.” (Balto. Co. Court Pro., H. W. S. No. 2, f. 178).
The place referred to in this deposition was, as well as I can determine, on the point on the south side of Redmond Cove, sometimes called Terrapin Island Cove, the second large cove on the east side of Bush River above Bush Point.
