Catherine(Katie) Holland (1888?-??)

Katie Holland was the only daughter of Eliza Rigg-Holland and William Holland. She was born at 3 Rectory Square, Mile End, Middlesex on 15th January 1888 [1888Q1 Mile End Vol: 1c, Page: 558]. She had a brother William who does not appear in the 1901 census and is believed to have died young - aged 3 or 4. In the 1901 census the family lived at 53 Malvern Road Leyton and next door at number 55 lived the unmarried uncles and aunts with her cousin Lilie Rigg. She is included in a photo of the aunts and uncles of my grandfather Alfred John (senior) Rigg (1889-1957) in which her cousin Rebecca Alice (1897-??) appears as a girl about 7 dating the picture to approx 1904 and Catherine's age as about 19. My cousin Winifred Eastment wrote to me in 1988 saying that she thought Katie Holland had died unmarried in her twenties. She also appears below with her parents.

Katie Holland was a cousin of my grandfather.
