"Brown's Ford where William Holder lived"

I believe "The Holders of Holderness: is the "The Holder Book" you are refering to. I have read this small book, and I find no connection to any Holder family being researched. Holderness was a location in England, and it is a theory that some families in this area took the last name of the area in which they lived then shortened their last name to Holder. Another theory is the Holder name came from a position they held.

The bottom line is last names have not always been. They were created, and often the spelling changed. I think it would be a waste of your money buying the book, and better spent on a 25 marker DNA test.

I believe your line would test into the "D" group

I believe your line looks likes this, but please do not publish as fact. A DNA test would confirm which group your line belongs in..
