Biography

In the cemetery of St. Mary`s, Amersham, England, there is a table tomb with the inscriptions;

Sacred to the memory of
William WELLER who died September 8th 1859 aged 62 years;

also of his widow Lydia who died November 9th 1897 aged 79 years;

also of William Weller, eldest son of the above, who departed January 9th 1908 aged 67 years.

Also the Revd. James Weller who died June 18th 1928 aged 76 years.

Mary died May 17 1871 age 25.
Lydia, died 25th August 1908 aged 66 years.
Henry died 12th February 1860 aged 12 years.

 

Lydia was the daughter of George HOLLOWAY, brewer, of Two Waters, Hemel Hempstead, and Eleanor COOK.  Her father's will refers to "my daughter or reputed daughter Lydia HOLLOWAY born out of the body of Eleanor COOK."  She had brother George HOLLOWAY and sister Sarah Holloway COOK.

Based on the auction article, they must have collectively decided to sell up the estate (of their father George Holloway) in Two Waters immediately, and hence all three children, now fairly well off, were able to decamp to Amersham in 1827.
