Hello, Janet,

Have you any further info for Edward Henry Collingwood other than birth & marriage ?

Have you found him in any of the censuses ?  If you have details of his marriage, what was his occupation, his wife's name or any children ?   What records have you searched for this death  ?  These are all clues that would help to track him down.

Meliora
RIP 1927-2018

How do you get a C1872 death from the info you've told us about?.
 Is there anything else upon which you base this date?
Who notified the wife's death, for example, and how was she described.?

Edward died in Hong Kong,1878, I have tried to find more eg, how he died and will post more as i get used to this bb. Daniel Collingwood, EHC's direct great-great-grandson, b. poplar 1943.

29---/01/20-   Edward Collingwood/ carpenter British ship Dhaewar/ born at Blackway/ died at Hong Kong 24th October 1878/ aged 51 years/ this stone is erected by his/ shipmates as a mark of esteem
~~~~~~~~
He may have lied about his age, he was in fact 61yrs
~~~~~~~~-
His appearance at The Old Bailley as a witness in 1848, AGED 31-32YRS IS INTERESTING.

EDWARD HENRY COLLINGWOOD. I am in the employ of a shipwright I was employed in taking some copper off the ship Earl Grey, belonging to Mr. Duncan Dunbar—I threw the copper on the punt—I can swear to all this copper, except two pieces—it came off that ship—two of these pieces in particular I can swear to, and the other I have no doubt of—they were all in the punt, which was under the ship's acting as a stage for me to work at the vessel—I know this piece by my own marking on it, and this one by its acting as a brace under the pump case.

Edward Henry's father was John Collingwood, 1776 - 1821

..he was only 45yrs and i believe  he died from a lung related illness from his trade as a ropemaker?
John Tucker's whitelead paint yard was almost within the ropeyards .Ropes were
tarred for protection against seawater and the mills were within the
same 'yards.' Most industry workers died of lung diseases especially
those involving tarring and whitelead paintmaking. I'm only guessing
but at around 1810 the rope industry was tough and i think John took
work close to his job and lived in Tuckers Court Alley where his son Edward
Henry also grew up and worked as a shipwright. Edward  moved closer to
the East India Docks to that he could embark to sea from there working
on ships and to escape the perils his dad endured with dangerous
chemicals. Edward was 4yrs old when his dad John died in 1821,so i
believe. He moved to No.6 Cawdor St, WHICH is covered by
the entrance of the Blackwall Tunnel Approach, A12 (part of the old
Brunswick Rd, that runs to my dads last home in St Leonards St.
As far as i can deduce Edward moved from Cawdor St, to Ellerthorpe St, which was cleared in 1951 for the new Lansbury Market project. Ellerthorpe St continued on from Ricardo St,THROUGH TO THE CURRENT market entrance.
His children, ie my Great-grandfather, Alfred Daniel,b 1846 were i believed born at Tuckers Court Alley.This place was close to the Poplar Workhouse and was also home for some rough 'Irish Cockneys.s
My grand father Alfred Daniel, b 1879 was never seen by his grandfather Edward Henry who died in Hong Kong the year before he was born, 1878.
Watch, this bb...I am trying to establish the Collingwood connections with historical events eg the English Civil War, The High Sheriffs of Northumberland, the pubs around Wapping, and the possibility that some may have sailed on pirate ships including Captain William Kydd.

Daniel...
