The history of Edwin John Trimmer Collins' family

Holy Trinity Church, Winchester
Holy Trinity Church, Winchester

Edwin John Trimmer Collins was christened in Holly Trinity Church on 24 August 1869. At that time his father gave his occupation as 'labourer'.

Lower Brook Street

Edwin's wife, Elizabeth Bulpett (Bulpit), was born in Lower Brook Street, Winchester on 18 August 1869. At that time her father James Bulpett was a fish dealer. Her mother, Louisa, maiden name was Dray. We believe her mother may have died during the 1870's.

At some stage the family lived at the Sun Hotel. Before Edith married, there are tales of her getting out of the window late at night to visit dances etc. and also getting caught!
