Susan Collett was born in 1923.  She married Llewelyn Hollett (Ref. 32Q70), the son of James Hollett (Ref. 32P52) and Ann Marie Gilbert, who was born in April 1914 at Harbour Buffett.  Like many others in this family line, Susan and Llewelyn share the same ancestry, in that Susan’s grandfather was George William Collett (Ref. 32N5) who was also the great grandfather of Llewelyn.  That is the reason why there is a ‘one-step’ difference in their generation references, which is explained below. 

 

 

 

This unusual situation arises from the fact the Susan’s father Peter Collett (Ref. 32O38) was one of the younger children of George William Collett, while Llewelyn’s grandmother was the oldest member of that family, there being a twenty year gap between their dates of birth.

Nelson Stanley Upshall was born in 1909 and he died on 1st October 1969.  He married Susannah Bella Trowbridge who was born in 1913 and who died on 16.05.1990 at Little Harbour East.  The couple had two children, Sheila Lillian born in 1949 who married Clifford Williams, and Harvey Nelson who was born in 1952 and who married Beaulah Upshall the daughter of Henry and Hilda Upshall.

 

 

 

 

32P87

Ada Beatrice Upshall was one half of a set of twins born at Corney’s Cove in 1911.  She married Neil Kenneth Masters who was born in November 1901 at Kingwell.  Ada died at Arnold’s Cove in 1993.  See reference 32Q40 for more details of this family.

 

 

 

 

32P88

Hilda Upshall was one half of a set of twin born at Corney’s Cove in 1911.  She married Uriah Gilbert who was born in 1910 and who died in 1995.  The marriage produced three children, Freeman Lewis born in 1943, Ada Elizabeth born in 1946, and Rita Ann born in 1952 who died in 1968.  Their eldest son Freeman Lewis Upshall married Florence Hann who was also born in 1943.

Thomas Edward Collett was born in 1902 and he married Dorothy Davis.

 

 

 

 

32P93

Henrietta Bridden Collett was born in 1903.  She married Austin McKenzie Butler who was born in 1901.  Henrietta died in 1988.

 

 

 

 

32P94

Charles Samuel Collett was born in 1905 and he married Winnie.

 

 

 

 

32P96

Lillian Muriel Collett was one half of a set of twins born in 1909.  She married Sam Randall and they had two daughters Audrey and Elaine Randall.

 

 

 

 

32P97

Irene Metcalf Collett was born in 1909 and she married Frank Wareham who was born in 1904.  Based on the assumption that they may have married around 1930 it seems more than likely that they had more than just the one known son, Bruce Alberta Wareham, who was born in 1943.  If an early 1930s wedding is a reality, the marriage may also have produced Percy Maxwell Wareham who was born in 1932 and who was the second husband of Alice Florence Collett (Ref. 32Q2), and John Douglas Wareham who married Clotilda Emma Marie Upshall (Ref. 32Q137) who was born in 1938.  Their proven son Bruce Alberta Wareham married Hilda Frances Gregory who was born in 1947 and with whom he had two sons Alberto Wareham, born in 1968, and Kenneth Wareham.

 

 

 

There must have been a good close relationship between the Colletts and the Warehams as, in addition to this coupling, Irene’s brother Thomas Collett (below) married Rita Elsie Daisy Wareham and her sister Queen Collett (below) married Harry Pafford Wareham.

 

 

 

In addition to all of the above, the first husband of the aforementioned Alice Florence Collett (Ref. 32Q2) was Ralph Arthur Wareham who was born in 1915.  Therefore in comparing the dates of birth of the more senior members of the Wareham family it can perhaps be assumed that Frank, the husband of Irene Metcalf Collett, was the brother of Harry Pafford Wareham (Ref. 32P100) who was born in 1913, of Ralph Wareham (Ref. 32Q2) who was born in 1915, and of Rita Wareham (Ref. 32P99) who was born in 1918.  In addition to this, all of these individuals may have links with the company of W W Wareham, a fish drier in Harbour Buffett.

 

 

 

Frank Wareham died in 1969 while his wife Irene Metcalf Wareham nee Collett lived a widow’s life for a further twenty years and died in 1990.

 

 

 

 

32P98

Ethel Adelaide Squires Collett was born in 1912.  She married Percy Charles Shave who was born in 1916 and who died in 1955.  Ethel died five years after her husband in 1960.  Their eldest daughter Jean Collett Shave, who was born in 1948, married Baxter Slade who was tragically drowned.  Like Jean, Baxter was also another direct descendent from Thomas Edward Collett (Ref. 32M3), them both sharing the same great great grandfather.  The couple’s other two children were Joan Glenda Shave (born in 1949) who married David Kane, and Harold Shave (born in 1951) who married (1) Linda Cumby and then (2) Susan.  For connections to other members of the Shave family see references 32O26, 32O29, 32O33, 32O40, 32O45, 32O49 and 32O52.

 

 

 

 

32P99

Thomas Collett was born in 1914 and he married Rita Elsie Daisy Wareham who was born in 1918.  Thomas died in 1987, although Rita is still alive in May 2010 at the age of 92.  It seems logical that Rita was the sister of Frank Wareham who married Irene Collett (Ref. 32P97), Harry Wareham who married Queen Collett (Ref. 32P100) and Ralph Wareham who married Alice Collett (Ref. 32Q2).  See Ref. 32P93 for more information on the Wareham family.

Thomas David Collett

Born in 1942

 

32Q147

Kevin Harry Collett

Born in 1943

 

 

 

 

32P100

Queen Collett was born in 1916 and she married Harry Pafford Wareham.  It seems logical that Harry was the brother of Frank Wareham who married Irene Collett (Ref. 32P97), Rita Wareham who married Thomas Collett (Ref. 32P99) and Ralph Wareham who married Alice Collett (Ref. 32Q2).  See Ref. 32P97 for more information on the Wareham family.  Queen and Harry had three children and they were Phyllis Rita Wareham (born in 1939) who married Jim Whatley, Patricia Rose Ann Wareham (born in 1943) who married Jim Janes, and Harry Wareham (born in 1952) who married Peggy.

 

 

 

 

32Q2

Alice Florence Collett was born in 1924 and she married (1) Ralph Arthur Wareham who was born in 1915 and with whom she had three children.  Robert Wareham, Ralph Wareham junior and Elizabeth Wareham who married Mr Stuckless.  From the records it would appear that Ralph may have died as, at a later date, Alice married (2) Percy Maxwell Wareham who was born in 1932.  It seems logical that first husband Ralph was the brother of Frank Wareham who married Irene Collett (Ref. 32P97), Rita Wareham who married Thomas Collett (Ref. 32P99) and Harry Wareham who married Queen Collett (Ref. 32P100).  See Ref. 32P97 for more information on the Wareham family.

MAX ROBERT COLLETT was born in 1938 and he married (1) Vera Taylor, (2) Molly Graves, and (3) Brenda.  His first two children were born out of his marriage to Vera, while the last three came from his marriage to Brenda.  In 2009 Max was living at St John’s in Newfoundland, and he and Brenda were just two of the many names listed in the obituary for his eldest son Vernon at Toronto in July 2008.  The same obituary made reference to Vernon’s sister-in-law Patsy Eldon Saunders who would have been the wife of one of Max’s three sons who were all mentioned.  It must therefore be assumed that Vernon’s nephew, Jonathan Collett, would have been the son of Patsy Collett.

Donna Collett was born in 1956 and was the daughter of Charles Watkins Collett and his wife Molly Collett, also her maiden name, since she was the daughter of Percy Collett and Harriet Dicks.  Donna later married Byron Collett and their marriage produced two daughters for the couple.  Up until May 2009, nothing was known about Byron Collett, or where he came from, and to which branch of the Collett family he belonged.  That is until details were received from Randy Collett in December 2010, who is the brother of Byron.

 

 

 

The new information revealed that Randy and Byron were two of the five children of Ronald Collett, who was the eldest son and second child of Charles Leslie Collett and Ethel Constance King.  Charles Leslie Collett was born in England around 1900 and he and his family lived in Forest Gate in the London Borough of Newham, that being the historic gate to Epping Forest. 

 

 

 

It is possible that Charles and Ethel were married in England, just before they emigrated to Canada around 1925.  It also seems very likely that the couple’s move to Canada apparently caused some falling-out with Charles’ family, and that is why it has not been easy to trace his family.  The children of Charles Leslie Collett and Ethel Constance King were Gladys Collett, Ronald Collett, David Collett, who was born at Calgary, Philip Collett, Charles (Chuck) Collett, and Charlotte Collett who was born in northern Alberta. 

 

 

 

As regards their son Ronald Collett, his marriage to Kay McKenzie produced five children, and they were Wendy Collett who married Dave, Randy Collett who married Sue, Byron Collett who married Donna Collett, Lauraine Collett who married Norton Fast, and Sandra Collett who married Keith.  It is hoped that in due course more details will be revealed about these two families.

 

 

 

What is known is that Charles Leslie Collett was the son of George Collett and his wife Ellen Wise Humble, and he had a brother Herbert Collett and a sister Fern Collett.  Charles’ wife Ethel Constance King was born around 1904, and she was the eldest child of George and Jessie King who, in April 1911, were living in the Wellingborough area of Northamptonshire when Ethel Constance was six years old. 

 

 

 

Once in Canada the family settled in Calgary, where they lived up to about 1937.  It was while they were there that Ethel presented Charles with the three children named above.  Further children were born into the family after they had left Calgary and moved to Alberta, again as named above.  Charles Leslie Collett died in 1974, and was followed six years later by his widow Ethel Constance Collett nee King who died in 1980.  All of these brief details have been kindly provided by Randy Collett from Canada, in the hope that further information about his English ancestors may be revealed at some future date.
