All of the information was generously provided by Peter Collett (Ref. 24P61) of Oslo

as an extension to the Collett family line of Norway depicted in Part Twenty-Four.

This commences with Bernt Anker Collett (Ref. 24M35) who distinguished his

from that of the Norwegian branch by changing the spelling of the name

 

 

 

24M35

Bernt Anker Collett (Collet) was born in Norway on 8th August 1803.  He married Emilie Henriette Christense Rorbye and they had two children.  It was Bernt who is credited with taking the name into Denmark and in order to distinguish it from the Norwegian family he decided to drop the last t in the surname.  Bernt Anker Collet died on 2nd February 1857, while his wife Emilie Henriette Christense Collet nee Rorbye passed away on 17th April 1868.
