Hi all be it a bit late now but just started family tree and found this thread. I've gone back to 1624 Benjamin holyoake Waltham st Lawrence moved to hurst Berkshire, then his son richard to little coxwell also Berkshire. The holyoakes stayed until 1835 when they then moved to oldbury in Birmingham where Elisha was a connexion vicar and his son Elisha became a coal miner does this ring any bells with other holyoakes. Also traced to south cerney in Gloucestershire where they married into the smiths and penrose. More than welcome to share tree but would love some more info.
