There were Hollyers at Binfield, Berks over several generations, starting with the marriage of Thomas Hollyer and Mary Mills in 1749 in Reading. There was also a family of Hollier/Hollyers in Shinfield and Sonning. There are early records from Berkshire in the 16th century. By the 19th century, however, the families seemed to have moved to London and no descendants are known of these Berks families. Another Hollyer family were at Bisham and Cookham.
