As with most counties in the West Midlands, Holliers migrated from Warwickshire. There are some family fragments at Kings Norton in the 17th and 18th centuries, many with highly 'deviant' surname spellings, but they don't seem to be from the area. A single family at Northfield around the 1730s used the name Jacob. The family at Hagley were connected with the Barton-under-Needwood family from Staffs and owned Hollier's Farm. For families at Redditch and Tardebigge, see Studley, Warks. For families at Dudley, see Leicestershire (Stoke Golding etc). For families at Handsworth, Old Swinford and Stourbridge see Birmingham.
