Holland was a cousin of the novelist Elizabeth Gaskell and nephew of the potter Josiah Wedgwood. After completing his medical training, he spent eighteen months travelling in Portugal, Gibraltar, Sardinia, Sicily, the Ionian Isles and Greece. On his return, he published Travels in the Ionian Isles, Albania, Thessaly, Macedonia, etc. (1812 and 1813). The book was an immediate success. On his return Holland set himself up as a society physician.
