Re: Colla family Hackney
I too have been helping my wife to research her Colla ancestry. We have gone back to the birth of Andrew Colla (b 1807 Italy). He was a birdcage maker who married Harriot or Harriet in 1831 and their children were;Baptista,Andrew,Lewis,Harriet and Peter George.They lived in Camberwell. Lewis or Louis Colla was later a fruit salesman in Covent Garden Market and we are descended from him.
Peter George Colla was a fishmonger and he married a lady with the surname Jewell.They lived in Shoreditch.
