One of the notable old family names of Georgia and Florida is that of Hallowes. The founder of the Florida branch of this family was Miller Hallowes, an ancestor of Miss Elise Dancy Davis of Tallahasee. On a visit to England in 1960, Miss Davis was able to consult the researches of Dr. Lorton A. Wilson of Derby who had devoted the years of his retirement to tracing his origins and those of his wife, who was a Hallowes descendant. Through the kind offices of Miss Moira Wilson, the late Dr. Wilson’s daughter, and the Irish Genealogical Society, with whom the researches are deposited, she was able to copy many of the pertinent records. From these notes, Miss Davis has made available to the Quarterly a biographical sketch of Miller Hallowes.
