COLLARD: 1662/3-1812, Chislet, Kent, ENG
The following COLLARD surnames were found in the Bishop's Transcripts (BTs) of the parish of Chislet in East Kent, ENG. These records were searched between 1662/3 and 1812 but there were no COLLARD surnames found here before 1692.
I have no connection to any of these individuals but I do have a COLLARD family tree to which they belong. Please contact me if you want further info.
Also, if any of the following entries interest you, please verify the info for yourself in the records -- ie. either in the BTs or in the original parish registers (PRs). I have tried to be as accurate as possible but errors could still have occurred. Andrea (COLLARD Message Board admin)

Details re: your COLLARD Line (Kent, ENG)
Hi Mervyn -- not sure how much detail you have about COLLARD but will share with you what I know.
All of the connections I mention are from a COLLARD family tree done by Edward Maynard COLLARD. I'm not sure when he did it but he was born 1866 so it was probably sometime in the early 1900s. All locations mentioned are in Kent (ENG) unless otherwise specified.
I will start with the earliest known COLLARD on this tree, who was:
1) Ambrose COLLARD of St. Nicholas at Wade. No other info.
2) Ambrose's son Henry born about 1657 is only known child (there must have been more). Although the COLLARD tree does not indicate it, I think he must have been married twice, both times to a woman named Mary. He married first wife Mary SALLY (or SOLLY) at St. Nicholas at Wade 15 Feb 1680/1. They had son John bapt 4 Feb 1682/3 (more about him in item #3 below) and son Henry bapt
18 May 1687, both at St. Nicholas at Wade. Wife Mary buried in same parish on 11 Feb 1688/9 and son Henry four days later 15 Feb 1688/9.
Henry appears to have married again, to another Mary, and had three more children -- Mary 1692, Henry 1694 and Ambrose 1697, all bapt Chislet.
3) John COLLARD born 1682/3 married to Frances STARK(E)
5 Apr 1707, probably at Canterbury. Frances was bapt Chislet 14 Apr 1690, dau of Ambrose STARKE.
COLLARD family tree states John was "of Chislet", died 1760, and is buried at Reculver. I have no info on death of Frances.
John & Frances had ten children. Do you have all info about them? If you can tell me what you know, I can fill in any blanks.
4) John & France's son John bapt Chislet 7 Oct 1711, married Mary WHITE, date & location not on COLLARD tree which says that John was "of Broomfield, Herne" and also buried at Herne (1758). Mary was dau of Thomas WHITE of Herne. After John's death, she remarried to Robert TRITTON of Herne (1761).
John & Mary had seven children. I can share details if you don't have them.
5) John & Mary's son, Thomas White COLLARD bapt 5 Jan 1741/2 at Chislet, married Ann DENNE in same parish 19 Oct 1765. According to COLLARD tree, Thomas was "of Little Barton Farm" and Ann was dau of David DENNE of Chislet Court. Thomas bur 28 Dec 1793 Chislet. No death info re: Ann.
Thomas & Ann had 11 children, most of them bapt at Canterbury, but some buried at Chislet. I can share details if you want them.
I will just mention son Robert born 1783. He is my loose connection to COLLARD, although it is not a blood line. Robert's grandaughter, Fanny Sophia COLLARD born 1872, married my maternal
grandfather at Herne in 1894. However, she was not my grandmother.
6) Thomas COLLARD (brother of Robert) born 1775, married to Sarah MOUNT in 1802, lived at Sextries, Nackington, and buried at Nackington 1867. Thomas & Sarah had 14 children, as you probably know but, if not, can share details.
7) The info on the COLLARD tree ends with your
great-grandparents Charles "of Little Barton Farm", born 1813, married to Ellen SAYER.
I have found them on the 1881 census, living at Little Barton Farm, Canterbury St. Paul --
Charles COLLARD, age 67, JP Farmer of 500 acres employing 26 men & 5 boys, born Nackington
Ellen COLLARD, wife, age 61, born Littlebourne
Spencer COLLARD, unmarried farmer's son, age 24, born Canterbury
Percy COLLARD, unmarried farmer's son, age 22, born Canterbury
Harriet BARBER, unmarried servant/domestic cook, age 36, born Sandwich, Kent
Susannah TWIGG, unmarried housemaid, age 21, born Kirton, Lincolnshire
That's all for now. Let me know if you want more. Andrea (COLLARD Board admin, in western Canada)
