The Bower & Collier Family History

Research by Colin Bower

Brecht One-Name Study

Progress Made in 2015

On a rare visit to London, I met up with a first cousin from Australia and her husband and we went to the Town House in Fournier Street, Spitalfileds, a former weaver's house. The owners were in course of putting together a map of Spitalfields showing where residents with Huguenot names lived.

I was interested in Fashion Street where Heinrich/Henry Brecht was a colour manufacturer.

The map has since been published.

I spotted two interesting Huguenot entries in the map:

Isaac Godier who married Eliza Collier, daughter of Charles Collier, Silk Weaver was living in Fashion Street.

Louis Gaucheron was living in Tyssen Steet. Louis' granddaughter Mary Kemp married Thomas Collier.
