Hi there,

they all seem to have married. On freebmd;

Dec 1892 HOLLAND Henry Featherstone Pancras 1b 134
Sep 1898 HOLLAND Amy Constance Kensington 1a 241
Dec1899 HOLLAND Fanny Eliza Brentford 3a 202
Sep 1901 HOLLAND Bessie Adelaide Watford 3a 1287
Sep 1907 HOLLAND Margaret Jessie Marylebone 1a 1320

Interesting that Margaret is the last to marry, even though she was the oldest sister. I wonder if she was looking after elderly parents?

The Isle of Wight Family History Society has a lot of information on its site if your family were on the island for any length of time.

Best wishes
