Henry Collis born 1826: Hurst, Berkshire

All that I knew about Great Great Grandparents Henry and Hannah before starting the family history was they were Emily’s parents. Henry was the first teacher to the Straits. They lived on Cape Barren before moving to Sawyer’s Bay. Their final resting place – Wybalenna.

The image below originates from Hannah’s photo album.

 ‘The Collis family, Hurst Berkshire’: – from experience, there may well be other family members with the same photo able to fill a few gaps – just maybe!

It’s possible there are other images to discover?

Fred’s eldest Granddaughters history (Emita Museum) indicated they lived in Sydney for a short time and where Clara Dora was born. Henry had family in Sydney this was confirmed with the letter from his brother Alfred. Henry had 6 siblings. If there are any corrections or stories (further images) please comment and this will capture your contribution.
