PART SIXTEEN

 

The Lucy Ann Collett Line – 1820 to 2000

 

Updated May 2015

 

 

This is the family line of Brian John Foster of Maryborough in Australia

and commences with Lucy Ann Collett from Part 14 – The John Kyte Collett Line

 

 

14M13

LUCY ANN COLLETT was born at The Mill in Bourton-on-the-Water on 27th February 1823, the ninth child of Robert Collett of Upper Slaughter and his wife Mary Ann (Marianne) Kyte. 

 

She was a milliner and dressmaker and lived for some years with her widowed father up to 1853 when she sailed to Australia on the ship Euphemus.  On arrival at Melbourne she was engaged as a dressmaker, working for a Mr Turner at Geelong.

 

At the start of the following year, whilst at Castlemaine, she met and married John Henry Foster a carpenter and builder.  John was born in London in 1827 and the couple was married on 25th March 1854.

 

Lucy Ann Foster died on 24th December 1902 at Queensland, her husband John having died two years early on 5th July 1900.

 

 

 

For this update, a better quality photograph of Lucy Ann Foster nee Collett has been kindly provided by her great great grandson Brian Foster.  At the same time Brian submitted details of a Phyllis Mary Collett nee Blunt who married a Frank Collett who had links with the island of Jersey. 

 

 

 

Phyllis Mary Blunt was born in 1923 at Nakuru in Kenya, the daughter of British parents.  She was educated in Belgium by Ursuline Nuns and she served with the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force during the Second World War.  It was also during the war that she met Frank Collett, whom she married and with whom she had five children, the first three being born before 1952.

 

 

 

After the war, the family lived on Jersey, but emigrated to Australia in 1952, and it was at Melbourne that the couple’s fourth and fifth child were born.  A book written by Phyllis Mary Collett entitled ‘Historical Homes of Wide Bay’ was signed by her in 1983, and was handed down through the family of Brian Foster’s wife.  Wide Bay is in Queensland, Australia.  However, it has still to be resolved who her husband Frank Collett was, and who his parents were.
