John Holyer's signature

The signature of John Holyer from his marriage bond of 1737. Canterbury Cathedral, where he married, records the name as Hollier, but he clearly signs as Holyer, as he did on his will. John is the 'father' of the 'Kent Holyers', though there is evidence of Holyers in the Romney Marsh area back as far as 1399. Many of the Kent Holyer families, including my own, eventually changed their name to Hollyer.
