This message replicates one I posted on The Rootweb Birmingham list. I repeat it to this forum in case someone who may help does not read that list.

Can any one suggest how I might further my research on ancestor George COLLETT who, in his will dated 1846, said that he had “leasehold tenements, shops, warehouses buildings and premises” in Hospital Street Birmingham. Are there documents or published materials that might allow me to discover the details and extent of these.

George lived in Rugeley, Staffs at the time of his death.

In 1819 he had his daughter Amelia (re)christened at St Phillips, Birmingham and gave his address as Pimlico, London and his occupation as Gentleman[

On the same day (30 Sept.), Joseph Collett of Jamaica Row, a Tailor by profession, had his dau. Elizabeth christened at the same Church. I am presuming that George and Joseph were brothers.

Any information will be much appreciated.
