I have an Edward Hollis & Fanny Eliza Hollis born St Lukes C1856, in my family tree, probably the same ones, the only definite records I have are from Elizas marriage certificate 28/2/1875 to William Henry Tucker at St Thomas's Bethnal Green, her father is given as Edward Hollis. I could not make out his occupation but Traveller is a possible.
A Fanny E Hollis appears in the 1861 census age 4 at 28 Huntingdon Street, Shoreditch staying with her Grandparents George & Margaret Hawes.
An Edward Hollis and Mary Ann Hawes both appear in the marriage index for Qjun 1857 with the same suffix, (Shoreditch 1c256), this I was sure was Edwards marriage and I sent off for the certificate, I was told yes these two were on the same page but were not married to each other, I intend trying again for this Edward without specifying the wifes name.
I have not found Edward on any other records and also have not found his daughters birth record. I have been looking through registers at the LMA but nothing yet.
There are several Edward Hollis's on the census for this area but none of these look likely.
If this is the same Fanny Eliza I would like to here from you, I am descended from her via her daughter Eliza Joyce Tucker who was my Great Grandmother.
