John Holloway, of Upper Clatford in Hampshire, was Ari’s 7x great-grandfather.

The village of Upper Clatford is described as “long and straggling, lying on both sides of the Andover road” (http://www.british-history.ac.uk/vch/hants/vol4/pp359-365). The parish registers go back to 1571.

On 10 October 1765 John married Joanna Collins at All Saints’ Church. This puts his date of birth at approximately 1744.

John and Joanna had four daughters: Elizabeth, Joanna, Mary (who died as a baby), and Sarah.

There is a burial of a John Holloway in the village on 12 August 1780, but is this him? Hoping to find out more!

Ari, this is how you are related to John:
