HOLLAND, WILLIAM

HOLLAND, WILLIAM (?–1833). William Holland, early settler, traveled to Texas from Louisiana in 1822 with William Burney and Francis Holland and settled with his brother on Holland Creek in what is now Grimes County. Holland voted in the election of April 1824, when the Baron de Bastrop was chosen Texas elector for the state convention of Coahuila and Texas. As one of Stephen F. Austin's Old Three Hundred colonists, Holland received title to his Grimes County league on August 10, 1824. The census of March 1826 classified him as a farmer and stock raiser aged between forty and fifty. His household included his wife (a former Miss Buck and sister of Mrs. Francis Holland) and three sons. According to William P. Zuber, Holland died in 1833.
