Hi my name is Gill Martin,

I am looking for information on my GG Grandma, Elizabeth Collis who was born in Barbados c 1854. On the 1861 England Census is shows her on there in Manchester, Lancashire. Her mother is Ellen Bromley - widowed - (aged 35) she was married in 1857 to George Bromley who died in 1860. I am trying (in vain at the moment) to find out more on Ellen (Who when she married George was down as Ellen Collis) which may give me some answers to my GG Grandma Elizaabeth Collis, If anyone has any info which can help me, then I will be hugely gratful.

Kind Regards

Gill :roll:

Hi Gill, you did ask one time if our searches could be related. My great grandfather was born John Planta Collis in Jamaica in 1837. His father was John Collis who arrived in Jamaica 1833 and died 1838. He was a Brother in the Moravian church in Jamaica.His wife was Mary Ann Hollingworth.

John Planta arrived in Australia approx 1863. looks like no relation. I have also searched Jamaican family search, but have seen no mention of Elizabeth.

Hope you have done well in your search..Barry
