If anyone could look at a St Martin's Birmingham marriage entry, banns or licence for 26 DEC 1765 (IGI) to see where Mary COLLIER [COLYER?] and Thomas COLLET resided and if any ages, professions etc. are given, this would be much appreciated. I appreciate that at this date there may be no detail.

It is a bit of a long shot but my Thomas COLLETT of Rugeley, Staffs married a Mary and they had a son William Colyer (various spellings) COLLETT (or COLLIT). The family have Birmingham connections for business so it is possible.

Many thanks,

Wouldn't by a very long shot be in the clay tobacco pipe trade????

Not that I am aware but I really can't rule it out. The family may have had connections with Armitage so it is possible.
