Professor E. Weekley tells me that the name is derived from the Holly bush, but it may have been a place-name first, and have been transferred later from the Cheshire manor to the family. This was the manor of Hoole in Broxton hundred which seems to have given its name to a family living there in the thirteenth century. There is mention in 22 Ed. I of Walter, son of Robert de Hole, and of a John de Holes in 13 Ed. III. Then the manor passed to the Molington family, but the later bearers of the name Holles or Holys in Cheshire were probably sprung from cadets of this original stock.

According to Ormerod ( II, p. 548) Sir Hugh de Holes married Margery, daughter of John Domville, and with her acquired a share in the manor of Mobberley. Their son, Thomas Holes, left a daughter, also named Margery, who married Sir John Troutbeck (slain at the battle of Blore Heath, 1459) and took the Holes' lands with her into her husband's family.
