Africa has never had the same popularity as Australia or New Zealand as a destination for emigration.
Reginald Frederick Hollyer (1895-1957), a motor mechanic from Walthamsow emigrated with his family to South Africa in 1924. His grandaughter, Beatrice Hollyer (b.1957) is a well known consultant, journalist, writer of books on child welfare and former newscaster.
Alfred Ernest Hollyer (1891-1954) emigrated to South Africa after the Second World War and his son Eric Bryan Hollyer was an electrical engineer with the Electricity Supply Commission from 1949 to 1985.
Elsewhere in Africa, Reginald Hollyer (1893-1964), son of Walter and Rose Ann Hollyer, married Alice Mandy in Dar es Salaam and had three children at Morogoro, Tanganika, but the family later returned to Britain.
