I am trying to dig up some info about my 5-G Grandfather and his family, one Robert Collings. His daughter Fanny married Matthias Gilbertson in 1801 in Islington and from a book on the Gilbertson family, I understand Robert was a Kings Messenger and a Merchant in London. Apart from the fact that Fanny must have died before 1841 (Matthias remarried that year) I have no more on the Collings family. I'm guessing Fanny was born aroud 1780 and Robert therefore around 1750 but thats all. If anyone has any more info on this family, I'd be most interested to hear from you!
