Re: Holley origins ?? (Ire., Eng., Scot.)
The "to-ing" and "fro-ing" between Ireland and Scotland started in very early times with some of the original Scots coming from Ireland - back as far as 90 AD. Some of the original ruling Scots descend from the Irish!!
Also the "Clearings" in Scotland led to some Scots emigrating to Ireland during that time.
There are places in Eng - in Cambridgeshire - named Holly Pond, etc.!!
