        There were, of course, other Hollywoods before the famous one in California.  From an 1844 Louisiana case, a reference to a Hollywood Plantation in Louisiana:

        >>They did reside on his father's plantation some two, three, or four years; afterwards at Hollywood, the residence of John Routh, on Lake St. Joseph, until after the completion of their town house, after which their time was measurably divided between the two places.<<

Routh v. Routh, 9 Rob. 224, 41 Am.Dec. 326 (La. 1844).  "Hollywood" is also a surname.
