Samuel Holland Senior, was a Liverpool merchant who in 1819 leased a quarrying site at Rhiwbryfdir. His son, Samuel Junior, managed this site from about 1821 onwards. It would seem that Senior also invested in other quarries, selling one for �28,000 in 1825
Their ownership of this quarry was very instrumental in the initial building of the Ffestiniog. Samuel Junior capitalised on the railway and invested in wharves at Porthmadog for the shipment of his slate output.
Charles Menzies Holland was the nephew to Samuel Junior
