Notes
General:
Sarah was 19 years old at the time of her first marriage which took place at the Parish Church, Wellingborough, Northamptonshire. Her profession at her first marriage was given as housekeeper, and her address was Railway Station.

When she married for the 2nd time her occupation was given as Closer and her address was given as White Horse yard. In the 1861 Census, there is a Thomas and Martha Horn living next door to William Darlow and Sarah. Possibly Sarah's brother and sister in law from her first marriage. Also Sarah's brother Thomas aged 14 was living with William and Sarah in 1861.

Sarah's mother, Maria Smith, is said to have been a gypsy (sjholmes51-Ancestry.com). Robert Bernard Blackwell used to tell the family a story about someone in the Darlow family being a gypsy (Romany Traveller). He said that the women in the family used to sit around the fire smoking pipes and that the family used to talk in a different language. Dave Darlow, England, in July 2012 advises that they were told that Sarah Holland was a gypsy and his father could speak the gypsy language as could his grandfather and they learnt it from Sarah Darlow (Holland).

In 1872 when Charles Henry was born, Sarah and William were living at Box Meadow, Blatchinworth, Lancashire and William's occupation was given as brickmakers labourer. In April 1875 when Charles Henry died, William and Sarah were living at New Road, Dearnley Wuerdle, Lancashire. Interestingly, Sarah's surname is given as Late Horn, formerly Johnson on Charles Henry's birth certificate.

John 1910-

In 1911, Thomas's wife Sarah and Florence and Alice were listed in the Northampton Work house, Wellingborough. Sarah is said to be married however I can find no trace of Thomas Snr or Thomas Jnr at this census. The census also states that there are 8 living children and none deceased. So there are 3 children missing from this list. I have found a Beatrice Holland 4 and a John Holland 1 (page 51 of 191) residents of the work house at this time, so I suspect they may be 2 more of the children

Serious Allegations Against Parents

Mr William Tamalin, the Deputy Coroner, conducted an inquest at the Swan Inn, Earl's Barton, on Friday afternoon, concerning the death of a child named John Henry Holland, aged twenty months, the son of Thomas Henry Holland, who died on wednesday morning. As the doctor was unable to certify the cause of death and allegations of neglect were made against the parents, the Coroner was communicated with, - The first witness was the father, Thomas Henry Holland, a shoe finisher of Earl's Barton, who said the child was a year and eight months old. He had three children alive, one aged six years and the other two twins three years. He had been at Earl's Barton fourteen months, but had been short of work at times, earned as little as 3s., and his best week only totalled 14s. Subsequently he confessed, in reply to the Foreman, that he thought he got as much as 1 one week. - Inspetor Ward, of the Children's Society, deposed to visiting the house and finding the child in a dirty state, lying on the brick floor with it's face on the bricks. The house was filthy and devoid of food. The child weighed 14lbs, with it's clothes on, and 13lbs without. It should have weighed 23lbs. - P.C. Burrows corroborated. - Dr Hyde said the cause of death was a disease of the lungs. Clean surroundings and careful treatment might have prolonged its life. - The jury returned a verdict of "Death from natural causes" and cautioned the father as to the uncleanliness of the house. They thought there was suficient work in the village if the man liked to look for it. They also considered that great indebtedness was due to the society for the way they had looked into the case, and also to the Inspector.

A SECRET MARRIAGE.
PETITION FOR DIVORCE.
EX-MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT
RESPONDENT.
Secretly married at the Perth Registry Office in May, 1914, the former member for Roebourne in the Legislative Assembly, Joseph Peter Gardiner, never lived with his wife, according to evidence related in the Divorce Court yesterday. The Chief Justice (Sir Robert McMillan) was petitioned by Mary Alice Gardiner, daughter of Mr. J. B. Holman. M.L.A., for a dissolution of the marriage, on the ground of desertion.
Mr. W. M. Nairn, for the petitioner, said that in 1914 the respondent had taken to drink; and the petitioner's parents would not approve of the proposed marriage until he had made some attempt to provide a home. Accordingly the parties were married at the registry office and parted at the door. A few days later respondent went to the North-West. His idea was to resign from Parliament, and to go on a pearling venture, and, when he was established, to send for his wife. When he reached his constituency, he was persuaded to stand again for Parliament. He returned to Perth in July, 1914, and took up a totally different attitude towards the petitioner. He called at the house of her parents in a state of drunkenness, and showed complete indifference. He made appointments with the petitioner, but never kept them. He shortly afterwards returned to the North-West to contest the election, without saying good-bye. Having won the election, he again returned to Perth in November, 1914. The petitioner saw him at the Trades Hall and Parliament House, and on one occasion she saw him take a number of her unopened letters out of his pocket, and he said that he did not have time to read them. The respondent disappeared from the State, and his seat was declared vacant. He was ultimately found to be in South Australia. The petitioner had no communication from the respondent until March, 1916, when he wrote from Victoria, stating that he had enlisted, and had made an allotment in her favour. He declared his intention not to live with the petitioner and said that if he got through he intended to go to England. He mentioned that he had loved her all along, and still did so, adding that she was a girl of unblemished character, and that he had been of no use to himself and a burden
to others. The respondent's father was in Melbourne in July and August last, and served the citation on the respondent who had returned from Europe. He repeated that it was his intention to leave Australia at the earliest opportunity, and said that his decision to leave the petitioner was final and unalterable.

The petitioner, in giving corroborative evidence, said that the respondent was a native of South Australia. Her father did not find out about the marriage until the middle of August, 1914.

J. B. Holman, M.L.A, in the course of evidence, said that when he was in Melbourne recently he endeavoured to induce the respondent to honour the marriage contract, but he refused.

His Honour, having commented on the unusual nature of the case, said that he had only to be satisfied that the respondent had deserted the petitioner without any good cause. The respondent made no suggestion whatever against the petitioner, but spoke of her as a girl of unblemished character. It seemed to be quite clear from the evidence that the respondent never had any real intention of living with the petitioner. The marriage was a very unfortunate one. It was a secret marriage, because, for very good reasons, the parents objected to it at that time. There would be a decree nisi, returnable in six months with costs.

NOTABLE CAREER
Miss Mary Alice Holman, who was more generally known as Miss "May" Holman, was born at Broken Hill (New South Wales) on July 18, 1893, and she came to this State with her mother when only two years old, her father, the late Mr. J. B. Holman, having arrived ; almost two years earlier. The eldest of a family of eleven, she was educated at a convent in Cue, where they made their home, and later at the Sacred Heart High School, Perth. Her education completed, she became a typist at the Perth Trades Hall and, in her leisure hours, she continued her musical studies attaining the degrees of L.A.B., for singing and L.A.B., L.T.C.L. and A.T.C.L., for piano.

In 1918 she became assistant secretary to the then State branch of the Australian Timber Workers' Union, and it was the ability she displayed in this position, coupled with the popularity which she quickly earned for herself, which paved the way for her entry into Parliament. Her father, whose name will always be remembered as one of the outstanding men of the early days of the Labour Party in this State, had long been prominent in the timber workers' organisation and was a member of Parliament for various terms between 1901 and his death in 1925. The timber workers saw in his daughter a fitting successor to his seat and she had little difficulty in gaining it in 1925. When she won the seat Miss Holman achieved the distinction of being the second woman, and the first woman representing the Labour Party, to sit in a Australian Parliament. In the succeeding years she had no trouble in retaining her seat.

Miss Holman was always deeply loyal to the Labour Party and her outstanding services to the party were recognised in 1933, when she had the distinction of being elected as secretary to the Parliamentary Labour Party, a post she held until the time of her death. She was delegate to several State A.L.P. congresses and to the interstate A.L.P. congress at Canberra in 1930; past president and secretary to the Perth Labour Women's Organisation; and Labour representative on the Adult Education Board. She helped to form the Labour Women's Central Executive and the Labour Women's Inter-state Executive- and was first president of the Labour Women's Central Executive of Western Australia from 1927 to 1930 and secretary in 1932-33. She was the representative of the Labour women on the Economic Council and a director of the "Westralian Worker" newspaper.

In 1930 she was appointed substitute delegate for the Commonwealth to the League of Nations Assembly at Geneva, hut her influence in this sphere was diminished by ill-health, which forced her to spend much of the following year in hospital. Miss Holman was also keenly interested in the West Australian Federation of Parents and Citizens' Associations - and she was general president at the time of her death, having filled the position for a number of years.

She is survived by three brothers - Messrs. J. B., E. J. and W. T. Holman - and five sisters - Mesdames- M. Corboy, W. Burge, B. Demasson and E. Thompson and Miss Shiela Holman.

MISS HOLMAN, MLA.
Dies From Her Injuries
A BRILLIANT CAREER
Perth, March 20.
Within three hours of being declared re-elected for the Forrest seat in the Legislative Assembly - a seat she had held continuously since 1925, when she was elected at a by-election caused by her father's death - Miss May Holman, J.P., M.L.A died in the St. John of God Hospital, Bunbury, to-day as a result of injuries she received in a motor accident last Friday night.

Miss Holman's name had been placed on the danger list at the hospital immediately she was admitted for treatment of internal injuries and fractures to both legs, an arm and some ribs. She rallied on Saturday and some hope was held out for her recovery, but during the night she weakened slowly and she died at 5.45 p.m. to-day.
When the accident happened Miss Holman was engaged in the closing stages of her election campaign accompanied by her sister, Mrs. B. Demasson, who was driving the car, she was travelling towards Brookhampton and they were about nine miles from Bunbury when the car skidded and overturned. Mrs. Demasson received a broken rib and a broken arm. Both women were picked up by a passing motorist and taken to Bunbury Hospital.
In the election on Saturday Miss Holman easily retained her seat and the returning officer, Mr. G C. Shier, declared her elected in the Brunswick Junction Memorial Hall about 3.30 o'clock this afternoon. She had a majority of 1157. One of her brothers, Mr. E. J. Holman, was a Labour candidate for the North Perth seat, but he was not successful. He was informed of his sister's accident while addressing a meeting and he left for Bunbury early on Saturday morning. By a tragic coincidence, Miss Holman's death occurred on the fourth anniversary of that of her mother, who died on March 20. 1935.
Accomplished Pianist
Miss Mary Alice Holman, who was more generally known as Miss May Holman., was born at Broken Hill. New South Wales, on July 18, 1893, and she came to this State with her mother when only two years old, her father, the late Mr. J. B. Holman. having arrived almost two years earlier. She was educated at a convent at Cue and later at the Sacred Heart High School, Perth. She became a typist and was an accomplished pianist.

During the war Miss Holman used her talents freely to entertain invalid soldiers and to raise money to relieve war distress. In 1918 she became assistant secretary to the then State branch of the Australian Timber Workers' Union, and it was the ability she displayed in this position which opened the way for her to enter political life. When her father died in 1925 she successfully contested the Forrest seat, which she held until her death.

Re-Elected
PERTH, Monday. - Seriously injured in a car accident when proceeding to address the final meeting of her campaign, Miss May Alice Holman, M.L.A. for Forrest, died in Bunbury Hospital to-night after her re-election had been declared.
As the life of Miss Holman, M.L.A., was despaired of late this afternoon, a special effort was made by the Electoral department to have the poll for her electorate, Forrest, completed. Just after four o'clock the last returns had been received and counted. The poll was then declared, showing that Miss Holman had been re-elected for Forrest by a majority of 1157. The- news was telegraphed to Mr. J.Holman. who was sitting by his sister's , bedside, but Miss Holman was too low for the news to he given to her.

Miss Holman's life was characterised by remarkable activity, a variety of accomplishments, and many years of unceasing endeavor in interests of the Labor party .She was the first woman member of' Parliament in the Commonwealth at the time of her election in 1925.

Born In Broken Hill, on July 18, 1893, the late Miss Holman came to West Australia with her parents in 1896. She was educated at the Dominician Convent, Cue, and the Sacred Heart High School, Perth. She matriculated at Adelaide and Perth Universities. Her father, the late John Barkell Holman, was among the pioneers of the Labor movement In West Australia. He entered Parliament In 1901, and remained a member of the Legislative assembly until his death In 1925

The late Miss Holman's connection with the Labor movement began In 1911, when she was employed as a typist at the Trades Hall, Perth. In 1918 she became assistant secretary to the Australian Timber Workers Union (W.A. t Branch). For the six months in 1925 she was acting secretary of the union.

First Labor Woman Member
Miss Holman 'was selected to contest the seat her father had held, and she became the first Labor woman to enter an Australian Parliament. Miss Holman promptly won a high measure of respectful attention from co-members. Her keenness and earnestness were factors that gained her high respect. A thorough knowledge of the timber industry, a wide range of general knowledge, and a marked ability to express herself lucidly and convincingly, made her Parliamentary career consistently successful.
