Hi Lawrence

Interesting request, especially because of the variations.

There are similar names in the registers of the Norwich and Canterbury
Churches and in view of what we know about the way people wrote down names,
I wouldn't dismiss any of them:

Canterbury:

OLIER, OLIUE, OLIUERE, OLIUIE, OLIUIER, OLIUIERT, OLIUYER, OLLIUIER (cross
reference OLIVER), OLLIUIER

Norwich:

OLIUIER, OLIUE (11 references)

Haven't bothered with any other variations.

Regards

Tony Fuller
