|Hollingsworth - (Ashby - Lincolnshire)
Think there are some Hollingsworths who were the children or grandchildren of John Hollingsworth, b. 1768 and christened in Frodingham, were borth or lived in Ashby. John appears to have married twice. His first wife was Sarah, surname unknown, had three children who I think survived her. His second wife was Mary Glover, b 1780, who he married in 1801, and she had 9 children. Their granddaughter Susannah, b.1857, married Charles Edwin Fowlston and was the mother of my grandfather Edgar Breasley. I am looking also for people related to her six children. I am in contact with persons related to Charles Edwin and Sidney.

|Everitt's in Fenby - (Ashby cum Fenby - Lincolnshire)
Simon Everitt came to Virginia sometime between his birth in 1657, and his marriage to Ann Turner in Isle of Wight County, Virginia, in 1690, south of Norfolk, Va. That area was a colony of dissenters: Puritans, Baptists, and Quakers.
His grandson, Thomas, named one of his sons 'Femby', which is an alternate spelling for Fenby. Naming people for ancestors and locations is a common thing in the culture of the American Southeast; so there is some indication that Simon's family may have come from that town.
I'm interested in any information on the Everitt family in Fenby in particular, and Lincolnshire in particular. For one thing, the name Everitt / Everett appears to be derived from the Anglo-Saxon 'ebeorhart', which means 'heart like a wild boar'. As Frey, whose totem was a boar, seems to have been worshipped in that area of England, I'd like to know if there are other connections between Frey, the boar, and the Everitt family.
