Father: Edward HOLLOWAY (c. 1816-1885)
Mother: Elizabeth SMITH (c. 1816-1889)
Cause of Death: Cancer of the pancreas
Note: This was the Frederick who was the recipient of the letters from Ralph Copeland, 3rd Astronomer Royal for Scotland. He was 67 when he died in 31 March 1906.

He was born in Stoulton, as were some of his brother(s) and where his father lived for a time. There is a 1901 census entry for a Frederick Holloway that fits for age and birth-place.

The 1891 census records him, wife Elizabeth, and children Emily, Eliza, Lavinia, Ralph and Ethel all living at home at 19 Newdegate, Aston.

An Engine Turner is/was someone who uses machines (e.g. lathes) to engrave patterns on metal. A typical application is in silver or jewellery work.

It would seem that Fred worked at Gorton Foundry around 1863. This was where Beyer-Peacock made locomotives until it was eventually closed in 1966. Gorton is now part of Manchester. This is probably where he met Ralph Copeland who was also an apprentice there at the time.

He is buried in grave 4652 in Yardley Cemetery (area 8), along with his wife, Elizabeth who survived him until 1922 and Harry Sampson, who died in 1952. Harry's son Ralph Sampson was Elizabeth Percival's (nee Kempson) cousin, who lived at 2308 Coventry Road in Birmingham. Harry's wife was Tissie Holloway. Ralph's wife was Dorothy (who I met once and knew as Aunty Dore.) They had two sons, Colin and Norman. Norman had Down's syndrome. I met him once at Virginia Water - I think it was when I was travelling to Italy to take part in Europatrol in 1973(?)

Mary of Llangollen

Mary Hughes the inspiration for the world famous nursery rhyme 'Mary had a little lamb'is buried in Broadwater Cemetery, Worthing.

Born in Llangollen, Denbighshire, Wales, on the 18th May 1842 during the reign of Queen Victoria.

Mary's father, John Thomas was a sheep farmer in the Vale of Llangollen.
Mary attended the British School in Brook Street, Llangollen and one day one of the lambs she had reared by hand as pets followed her to school where it caused such a commotion that the teacher Miss Coward made her remove it and tie it outside to the nearby toll gate.

One of three sisters, named Burls who were visiting the area at the time from London was so amused by the incident that on her return home she penned the poem 'Mary had a little lamb' that later became the well known nursery rhyme.

Mary in her later life moved to the South of England where she died in Worthing on 9th December 1931 at the age of 89 and was buried in Broadwater Cemetery.

To commemorate her life a lamb was cut in relief on the simple headstone of her grave.

Mary Hughes is buried at Broadwater Cemetery in plot number B13-1-4.


Mary had a little lamb
it's fleece was white as snow
and everywhere that Mary went
the lamb was sure to go.

He followed her to school one day
that was against the rule
it made the children laugh and play
to see the lamb at school.

And so the teacher turned him out,
but still he lingered near,
and waited patiently about
til Mary did appear.

And then he ran to her and laid
his head upon her arm,
as if he said "I'm not afraid,
you'll keep me from all harm".


"What makes the lamb love Mary so?"
the eager children cry.
"Oh, Mary loves the lamb you know"
the teacher did reply.

"And you each gentle animal
in confidence may bind,
and make it follow at your call,
if you are always kind".


Extract from Worthing Gazette 1931 recording the passing of Mary Hughes

Mary Hughes

Mary Hughes death was recorded in The Worthing Gazette on Saturday 12 December 1931

And Mary is dead. Do not try to explain it to little children for they will not believe you. They will tell you that she has gone away to play among the lambs she loved so well. So Mary is dead, and yet she will never die, her memory will go on for ever, immortal. When she was about six years old her little lamb followed her to school and frolicked until the mistress turned him out. That was why a Miss Buel who was staying at the farm at the time wrote the little verse. Probably even now a little child is murmuring through it or lisping it to daddy for his approval. While children live and play it will not die.

But Mary - Mrs. Mary Hughes of Ty-lssaf Farm, in the vale of Llangollen - the heroine of the Nursery Rhyme is dead, She died on Wednesday in her ninety-first year in the house of her daughter. Nurse Hughes, at 11 Ethelred Road, West Tarring. When I went to see Nurse Hughes, I was shown into the cosy little sitting room with the fret work motto 'Home sweet Home' hanging over the mantelpiece, and Mrs. Hughes' lovely cat Fluffy came in and lay by the fire. As I sat there, I was told how so long ago Mrs. Hughes used to mother her pet lambs feeding them from a teapot. She also expressed a wish, said Nurse Hughes, that she should be buried in Broadwater Cemetery and I am going to carry out that wish.

She was buried on the Monday :

lamb is cut in relief on the simple headstone of her grave.
