Thomas Collier married Sarah Mills, daughter of Sarah (?), on 24 October 1849 at Witney, Oxfordshire, England, Witnesses: Elizabeth Collier and Daniel Seeley.
On 7 April 1861 Thomas Collier and Sarah Mills lived at Ivy House, East Ham, Essex, England, Ivy House is across the road from the old Post Office near the old Cock Inn in East Ham and no longer exists (i.e. has been demolished). The Cock Inn was at 56 High Street North, East Ham buthas been demolished and a Barclays Bank is there now. The Old Post Office is a rare old building that survives in East Ham. Mrs Sarah Mills appears to be the victualler at the Cock Inn between 1845 and 1851 (census). The 1861 census records Thomas Collier, son of Stephen and Mary Collier, as residing at Ivy House in 1861 next to the Cock Inn and the Post Office. The 1838 tithe map of East Ham was checked and although Ivy House is not mentioned, Thomas does occupy two plots in the centre of East Ham village (plots 162 & 163) owned by Edmond Pycroft Esq. It seems reasonable to assume that this is the location of Ivy House especially as the Post Office is across the road and the Cock Inn almost adjacent to it.1,2
Thomas Collier is mentioned in the will of Stephen Collier dated 1 June 1863 at West Ham, Essex, England.
