– from research of Col. John Gabriel Holland –

Francis Gabriel Holland [93] was born about 1600 in England.
18 Sept 1620 sailed from England aboard the supply ship ‘John & Francis’ for Virginia
22 March 1621/22 Rebecca died in Colony of Virginia.
Her father was John George of Bristol, England.
bef. 14 Aug 1624 Francis Gabriel Holland married 2nd – Mary the widow of William Jonas.

from “St. James – Old Herring Creek Parish – a History 1663 – 1799” [p 19] following a short history of Colonel William Holland there is footnote as follows:
“Francis Holland came up from York County, VA to Anne Arundel Co round 1656.
Francis is listed in the early records as a Justice of the Anne Arundel Court.

“Holland’s Hills” 190 acres “to the westward of Herring Creek Bay” surveyed for Francis Holland Sr. in 1663, was inherited by his son Francis Jr, who sold it to Richard Harrison in 1685; now known as “Holly Hill” there is on the property a very old and charming plantation house listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It has been conjectured that the old Herring Creek Church was on this Harrison land.

Francis died in 1684, leaving a wife, Margaret, and two children, a daughter Margaret and a son Francis. He left to his children a large landed estate most of which descended to his daughter, as his son Francis died in 1687 without issue.
His widow married 2nd between 1684 and 1691 Hugh Gill.
Margaret the daughter married her distant kinsman William Holland.
clarification of this matter is to be found in William Holland’s LWT [Baldwin vol VI p234] and in Lord Baltimore’s Rent Rolls 1700-1707, found at the Maryland Hall of Records.
Colonel William Holland’s second wife was Elizabeth —, Executrix of his LWT

John Holland operated a grist mill on Somerton Creek in Nansemond County. That site can be reached from Holy Neck Christian Church by traveling south and west on Pine View until one comes to the narrow bridge which crosses Somerton Creek. The Mill sat on the left side. Just beyond is a three story frame house constructed ca. 1800. Behind the house there is an enclosed cemetery containing the remains of a number of Afro-Americans named Parker. These are recent internments dating to the late nineteenth century. It is said that when John Holland married Prudence Parker the grist mill was part of her dowry. as this site is quite near Pittmantown Rd and the Gates Co., NC line one might speculate upon the genesis of that particular Parker line… e-mail from Gabe Holland
