Bookplate of Rev Samuel Holland AM & MD
1771-1857

Samuel Holland was precentor of Chichester Cathedral.  He was the son of Rev Nicholas Holland who traced his family back to the 13th century – to the de Hollands of Upholland, Lancs.  This family became Earls of Kent in the 14th century and to some extent, by marriage, influenced the tortuous succession to the English throne.  Samuel Holland married in 1802  the Hon Frances Erskine, daughter of Thomas, Lord Erskine, Lord Chancellor of England,  son of the 10th Earl of Buchan, and this marriage accounts for the Buchan and Erskine quarterings on the bookplate. Their daughter, Mary Anne Catherine Holland, married Alexander Peters Birrell.
