My Elizabeth HOLLINGER (b 1824, Obermiesau, Pfalz) came to Canada on a bride ship in 1848. She was the oldest of eleven children of George HOLLINGER (b 1800, Eichelscheiderhof). George was a cooper. Her siblings were; George (b 1825), Daniel (b 1828), Charlotte (1829) and Carolina (b 1831). Her mother (Charlotte TRAUTMANN, b 1800) died in 1832 and George remarried (Elizabeth SCHNEIDER, b 1808) and they had; Walter (b 1833), Philip (b 1836), Caroline (b 1838), Jacob (b 1841), Michael (b 1844), and Eva (b 1847). Some of Elizabeth's siblings followed her and in 1854 George HOLLINGER brought the rest of the family to Waterloo Co., Upper Canada. George's brother Johann Ludwig HOLLINGER (b 1788, Eichelscheiderhof, known as Ludwig) had come to Waterloo county with his wife and children probably in the early 1840's.
Most (if not all) of the German origin Upper Canada HOLLINGERs are of George's or Ludwig's families (I think). There are also Irish origin HOLLINGERs in Upper Canada during this period.
