Elizabeth Collin

b. circa 1756, d. 1792
     Elizabeth Collin was born circa 1756 at Sussex, England.
Although Elizabeth Collen/Collin's baptism has not been found, the only family with that name in Helingly in the 1750s were Charles and Lydia Collen. They had children baptised in Hellingly: Sarah 1754; Charles 1746; James 1757 and Mary 1759.
A possibility for Elizabath's baptism is 4 Feb 1753 daughter of Richard Collins and Mary (Saunders?) at Heathfield All Saints. Other baptisms there to the same family are: Susannah (1749), Sarah (1755), George (1759) and Thomas (1764). A Richard Collins was buried there in 1749 and 1776.
Another important clue is that a John Akehurst was one of the witnesses to the marriage of Thomas Farrant and Mary Collen/Collins at Laughton on 20 Apr 1778. This is likely to be the John Akehurst who married Elizabeth Collins at Hellingly on 26 Dec 1776. Were Elizabeth and Mary sisters?1
