  • Notes 
    • Going over my research I failed to pass along the will of Hugh Tears, that mentions the HOLLAND SHEETS.

      I think if you read it, Hugh clearly states he wants his dau Elizabeth Tears from his wife Ruth Holland to INHERIT the HOLLAND SHEETS he has, and the HOLLAND SHEETS that Mr. Henry Hawkins has. And we know Elizabeth Holland was married to Henry Hawkins.
