Origins of surname

The name has two probably origins, one English and one Irish. The former suggests that the name means son of Nicholas, from Col and kin. The latter is an anglicised form of 'Coileain', meaning 'the young hound'.

Early records

The name first appeared in Jersey records in 1658 when Thomas, the first of three children of English soldier Thomas Collins, was baptised in St Ouen.
