Descendants of Charles Collas


This tree was added by Mike Bisson in 2021 as part of his research into the family which built La Frontiere, St Mary. It supersedes an earlier tree, Descendants of Jean Collas which is much less detailed. The tree was reviewed by Guy Dixon in 2022 and further names and details were added

In common with the majority of our trees, this descendancy has been subject to regular review by site editors and checked against Jersey church records. Trees including French ancestry have also been checked as far as possible against French primary records. It is not always possible to carry out such checks on sections of trees with United Kingdom and/or colonial content

Record Search

If you want to search for records for any name in this family tree, or for any other family name, just click below on the first letter of the family name you are interested in. This will open a new tab in your browser giving you a list of family names beginning with that letter, for which there are baptism records in our database of half a million church and public registry records.

You can also select marriages or burials. Select the name you want and when the list of records is displayed you can easily refine the search, choosing a single parish, given name(s) and/or start and end dates.

The records are displayed 30 to a page, but by selecting the yellow Wiki Table option at the top left of the page you can open a full, scrollable list. This list will either be displayed in a new tab or a pop-up window. You may have to edit the settings of your browser to allow pop-up windows for For the small number of family names for which a search generates more than 1,500 records you will have to refine your search (perhaps using start or end dates) to reduce the number of records found.

Notes and references

  1. Marriage record not found
  2. Although online trees show Richard and Marthe having four more children, no dates are given for them and we have been unable to find any church records which would confirm their existence
  3. Of La Frontiere St Mary, a fine, late-Georgian, house, built in the substantial English style of the era. Jean was perhaps a merchant in the early 1800s. Although we believe that the Jean who married Susanne Le Brun was born in 1765, the son of Richard and Marguerite, the Jersey genealogist Charles Langton, using court records, believed that he was born two years earlier to Francois Collas and Jeanne, nee du Pre, (qv)
  4. Proprietor in son's marriage record
  5. 1861 Jersey Census, St Mary (next door to his father): "Shipowner and Landed Proprietor". John Collas was the senior partner in J. & E. Collas in the Canadian maritime fisheries at Point Saint-Pierre, Gaspé, 1851- . This fishing station, or post, they had purchased from their fellow St Mary parishioners, Perrée & Co. After the Jersey bank crashes of 1886 had ruined Jersey`s oldest and foremost firm, Charles Robin & Co., it was taken over by John Collas and his brother Elias, the Robin connection being remembered in the title of the new firm, "Charles Robin, Collas & Co." It was, however, run entirely by the Collas family and their agents and family successors. John Collas was Deputy for St Mary, 1881--
  6. Proprietor, in daughter's marriage record
  7. Of La Frontiere; Captain, RJM, Churchwarden
  8. Rector of St Lawrence
  9. Solicitor's clerk in 1901, living at La Frontiere with his brother; afterwards Deputy Superintendant-Registrar
  10. Of Deloraine, St Saviour, Churchwarden
  11. Of Oaklands, Constable of St Saviour, 1908
  12. 1861 Jersey Census, St Mary: "Shipowner"; Merchant in Gaspé, at Point Saint-Pierre, see note above for later career
  13. Langton states that this couple were childless
  14. 1861 Jersey Census, St Mary: "Merchant"
  15. Capitaine au long cours (Master of vessel for long voyages). Master of J. and E. Collas`s 173 ton brig Two Brothers,1853-1860
  16. Proprietor. Daniel and Jane are shown on Langton's genealogy of this family as having had no issue
  17. Twin. 1861 Jersey Census, St Mary: "Mariner"
  18. Twin
  19. J. Jean, in Jersey Sailing Ships,, (Chichester: Phillimore & Co., 1982), 9, 46, has Francis, Samuel and an, as yet, unplaced James Collas as shipbuilders in Canada. Francis was at Fortune Bay, 1827-1840, James at Arichat, 1831 and Samuel at Malbaye, 1832-1840. J. & F. Perrée of Point Saint-Pierre, Gaspé and St Mary, Jersey are cited by John Jean as having had ships constructed at Malbaie "by the Collas brothers". Their nephews, J. and E. Collas would later be Perrée`s agents, buying his fishery from him in 1851
  20. Solicitor
  21. Co-Manager with Jean Simon of Abraham de Gruchy's St Peter's business until 1st May 1824: Beth Lloyd, "De Gruchy's" (London: Hale, 1982), 24. Afterwards manager of a public house in St Peter
  22. Shipbuilder in Malbaie: see above
  23. Marion Turk, in The Quiet Adventurers in Canada, (Detroit: Harlo Press, 1979), 202, thought there were two other children born of this marriage, James and Elias. The genealogist, Charles Langton, disagreed. His genealogy of this branch of the Collas family has three children, one of whom is shown above. Turk also suggests that Samuel may have married a "Charlotte" Perrée--a second marriage?--. A valid point seems to be that Samuel John Collas was in Malbaie in 1871 [Census], aged 28
  24. Godparents: E. J. Collas and Henrietta Perrée. He was a Cultivator, in 1874
  25. Cultivator. Jane Vibert was the widow of Daniel Dumaresq Collas. There was no issue of this marriage
