I have your post to the message board. I am in the process of moving and the packing goes on for ever. Sorry for the delay
First my great great grandmother was Mary Hollingsworth de Nieuwerkerk. Elizabeth was her younger sister. They lived together for the last part of their lives. The Hollingsworth family is quite large and they emmigrated everywhere - not only to British Guiana but also to Barbados and directly from England to other parts of the British Empire
In the Hollingswoth message board you should see a link to a Douglas Hollingworth who lives in Texas (I think) He seems quite knowledgabel about the family. Much more so than I am. The Hollingswoth family came from Scotland to Barbados and the BG. Elizabeth Haynes was born in Barbados.
That is one line of the family. Other lines of the family may have come directly from Scotland to BG. Cousins and distant cousins are sometimes thought to be brothers when they are not and the lines are hard to trace.
I have not been able to find the origin of the Haynes name
but many times a name like that would be the maiden name of a relative but I have not been able to find a connection. I know of other family names which came into the family that
Good luck with your research. Information is really not available from BG. But that is a subject for further conversation if you wish.
