A very old family of Anglo-Saxon origin. Beleived to have lived in Cheshire since before the Norman Conquest, most likely related to the Hollingsworths of the same area. Earliest known ancestor was Hugh Hollyn of Prestbury, Cheshire. It is an exceedingly rare surname, so, most people with this name are probably related.
Anthony Hollingshead was a Loyalist during the American Revolution and escaped to Canada.
