The Bower & Collier Family History

Research by Colin Bower

Family History

Silk Weavers named Collier - Progress 2009

A correspondent, a descendant of Thomas Collier (a Bethnal Green Silk Weaver) resumed contact and there may be a link to my wife Chris.

Remarkably her husband is related to me via the Saunders Family Tree.

Watermen/Lightermen named Collier

I am now not only corresponding with descendants of Silk Weavers named Collier but now Watermen/Lightermen named Collier!

Cockney Colliers Self Help Group

I started to issue Newsletters to most of my correspondents who have an interest in the Collier name and wanted to receive one. The intention was to pool our resources but there was insufficient news to warrant a regular newsletter.
