Holly Marsh

Holly Marsh, is a relatively common name for fields in the area and may be confused with Hollow Marsh, especially when the historical variance in spelling and scripts are taken into account. The was at least one property called Holly Marsh, probably in the Town or East End tithings, recorded in the 18th century poor book.
A Hampshire record, 19M61/4175, dated 1785 nine years before this 1794 map was drawn, shows that several fields in Holly Marsh were owned by the Kingsmills and rented by George Roberts.
 A seperate record held with the tithe apportiment map for 1840 held in the Somerset archives dated 1866 is a legal document in which the Rev Phillpot was confiring right to glebe lands. This shows a Holly Marsh lane in Emborough.
