Family History

By: Russell S. Pickett
( Links on this page are "blue" )

      The most senior member that I've found in this family is "George Collinson" (1) (the name later became Collison).   It is strongly believed that he emigrated from England in circa 1660 making this family one of the older families of the United States.   It is unknown exactly where he landed, however he was indentured to one Matthew Read who had paid for his trip to America.   Read had a Tobacco farm on Kent Island on the Eastern Shore of what is now the state of Maryland.   After George Collinson (1) served his indeture he was given 50 acres of land and the Collison family had its start in the new world as you can read below.

      The names highlighted in "Marroon" are the direct ancestors of my sons "Chris & Ryan Pickett".   The names highlighted in "Purple" are family members that have additional information.

      Anyone that has any further information or corrections on this family tree are asked to please contact me via "email".   This is a living document ... that is, it is always being worked on.   Sometimes you will see that family members have the number "xxx" before their name.   This is because they are new and have not received numbers as of yet but will shortly.

I would be glad to help any family member in their quest to link to this oldest Collison family.   I hope you enjoy my short history of the Collison Family.



The last known family member reported as passing away was:

" Margaret Anne Behen Collison "

Aug. 4, 1942 ~ Sep. 7, 2017

Wife of Robert H. Collison (635)

      George (1) is the senior family member known at this time.  His parents & siblings are unknown.  George (1) was born in ca. 1643 probably in England.  He emigrated to America in ca. 1660, along with others who were sponsored by one Matthew Read.  The first record we find of George (1) is from the Kent County Court records of Maryland as follows:
      "Att A Court holden upon Kent thes first day of May 1661" Present Capt. Robert Vaughan, Mr. James Ringgould, Capt. Thomas Brodnox, and Mr. Nickholas Pickard

      "The Deposition of George Collesson aged 18 years or thearabout sworn in Court, Saith that Thomas Bright leaned against the Cornner of the Chimny, Thomas Reead bade hime have a Care of his gunne and desired hime to lay it upe and tould hime that when he Died the gunne shuld be his and further saith not.

(signed) George Collinson"

      In 1662, George's (1) name was included with a number of other settlers on Kent Island in a petition to the Lieutenant General of Maryland.  The protest covered the disappearance of several thousand pounds of tobacco which was levied for the organization of a company of soldiers to protect the Island.

      George (1) served his indentureship (or contract) with Matthew Read to pay for his passage to America.  Settlers who could not finance the fare themselves were ordered by the Provincial Court to serve a term of years with a colonist, such as Matthew Read, who was already established here.  Mr. Read's Tobacco Plantation was on Kent Island.

      After serving his time with Mr. Read, George (1) entered a request for his own land on March 12, 1669 as follows:

Patents, Liber 12, p. 465:

      "Came George Collison of Talbot County and proved right unto fifty acres of land it being due to him for his time of service performed unto Matthew Read of this Province.
      Warrent then issued in the name of the said George Collison for fifty acres of land it being due unto him for the consideration above specified.

Certificate return the twelveth of June next."

- 12 March 1669

      There is no record of where this land was or what George (1) did with it.  Matthew Read also gave him a bushel of corn (for seed) & a suit of clothes upon completion of his indenture.

      George (1) bought a 80 acre tract of land from Robert Lambdin on June 16, 1678 for 2,000 pounds of tobacco.  This land was on the north side of the Choptank River in Talbot County.  This land was previously name "Rehobeth" by Mr. Lambdin who remained a neighbor of George (1).

      In 1680 he was married & his wife, "Elizabeth _____", entered into court to prove her own rights for fifty acres of land.  Elizabeth was also from England, however her maiden name is unknown.  The fifty acres that she received on August 9, 1680 was adjoined to their current property,"Rehobeth", & they named this fifty acres "Rehobeth Point".

      On October 6, 1682 the Collinson's sold "Rehobeth Point" to James Dowdall a planter, for 2,600 pounds of tobacco.  This transacton identified George (1) as a "cooper" or "barrel maker".

      George (1) gave a court deposition in 1696 regarding the boundries of "Wade’s Point" which was about one mile north of his property.

      In 1706, John Richardson, planter, of Talbot County sold "Rebobeth Point" to a George Collison which was probably George, Jr. (2) instead of George (1).  However, it could have been either.  Records show that the land went from the original purchaser, James Dowdall, to his wife Isabel who in turn willed it to one Thomas Studen (Studham).  Mr. Studham sold the land to a Winifred Richardson who in turn willed it to John Richardson.

      George (1) died in ca. 1715 based on Talbot County court records which mention that he was deceased as of 1716.  The records also tell that George's (1) property was now in the possession of George, Jr. (2).  The date of Elizabeth's death is unknown, however, she was still alive in 1716 based on the same above court records & also on the fact that she was remarried in 1716 to David Roberts.  It is believed that George (1) & Elizabeth had a total of three children based on records showing two other Collinson girls in the area.  Where George (1) & Elizabeth are interred is unknown.

Family Notes: The birth order of the children has not been verified.



      George (2) was born the only known son of George (1) & Elizabeth (_____) Collinson in cir. 1679.  His age is arrived at based on a land deposition in 1734 which recorded him as "55 years" in age.  He married "Elizabeth Kemp" in 1702 in the Church of England of Talbot County, however there is strong evidence that they lived together previous to their marriage.  She was born the dau of Robert & Elizabeth (Webb) Kemp on May 20, 1683 probably in MD.  (See the "Webb" & "Kemp" family documents).

      The Kemp's were close neighbors of the Collinson family, as can be seen on the map of Bay Hundred, Talbot Cty, in the front of this history.  They lived on the land called "Bolton".  This property was given to Elizabeth (Kemp) Collinson's mother, Elizabeth Webb Kemp, by her father Edmund Webb.  The Kemp's were a Quaker Family which the Collinson's were not.  This, of course, caused great problems for the Kemp family.  Elizabeth's father Robert disowned her for this act, leaving her a shilling in his will of 1702 for "marrying against my mind".  Robert's other dau, Jane, also married outside of the Quaker faith & was also disowned by her father.  Elizabeth was also disowned by the Quaker faith on May 27, 1704 at a Quarterly meeting held in the house of Sarah Stevens.

      George (2) had, it is believed, purchased "Rehobeth Point", 50 acres, from John Richardson, planter, of Talbot County & had also inherited his father's 80 acres farm "Rehobeth".  He farmed this land & he also had a Corn Mill on the property.  He had "Rehobeth Point" re-surveyed in 1725.

      George (2) died sometime between October 31, 1736, the date of his will, & December 6, 1736, the date his will was probated.  George's (2) will along with his wife Elizabeth's will are shown as "Appendix C" of this document.  He left his property to his three sons.  Elizabeth died in ca. 1744 as her will was probated in December, 1744.  Together George (2) & Elizabeth had 6 children.  Where they are interred is unknown.

Edward Collinson, (6)

      Edward (6) was born the son of George, Jr. (2) & Elizabeth (Kemp) Collison.  He married "Alice Caulk" who was born the dau of Peter & Sarah (Cartwright) Caulk.  Edward (6) inherited a 3rd of his father's land, appx. 43 acres, called "Rehobeth & "Rehobeth Point".  The portion left to Edward (6) was noted in his father George's (2) will as "his share of land laid out for him at the plantation he now lives upon."

      It is evident that the division did not suit the sons.  Perhaps the farm was not productive enough to support the three families, or some of them wished to locate else where.  A deed of partition was entered in the Talbot County land records in 1753 stating as follows:

      "Whereas certain controversies and debate have been had between Edward Collinson and William Collinson, sons of George Collinson, both of Talbot County, at the division of a tract called "Rehobeth" and a tract called "Rehobeth Point" into three equal parts - a commission of two men having been agreed upon to divide the said land according to the last will and testament of their father, George Collinson......"

      The document continues on with the division of the plantation, the description of each portion, & immediately afterward another deed was entered.  George (7) sold his one-third to his brother Edward (6), honoring the terms of his father's will.  Edward (6) now had a farm that was appx. 87 acres in size.

      Edward (6) served in the Colonial Militia in a Talbot County Company commanded by Captian William Webb Haddaway of Bayside in 1748.  His brother William (8) served also.

      Edward (6) died sometime between June 16, 1759, the date of his will, & March 3, 1762, a date on which two men, Benjamin Kemp & James Hewes, testified that they saw the deceased Edward Collinson sign his will.  Edward's (6) will also did not mention his wife Alice so it is sure that she died prior to 1759.  Edward's (6) will is shown as "Appendix D" of this document.  Edward's administration account filed on April 13, 1763 also stated that there was no widow.

      Edward (6) left all of his property to his oldest son George (11), & when he died to son James (15), & when he died to son Edward (17), & when he died to son Benjamin (18).  It would appear that he did not want to divide his property, due to the problems he had, between his sons.  Together Edward (6) & Alice had 9 children.  Where they are interred is unknown.

George Collinson, III, (7)

      George (7) was born the son of George, Jr. (2) & Elizabeth (Kemp) Collinson.  He married "Sarah Aldern" who was born the dau of Richard & Elizabeth (_____) Aldern who owned a large tract land called "Yafford’s Neck" in Talbot County.  George (7) evidently met Sarah Aldern at the St. Michael's Parish Church where her mother Elizabeth owned several pews.

      George (7) inherited one-third, appx. 43 acres, of his father's land called "Rehobeth" & "Rehobeth Point".  The portion he inherited was noted in his father George's (2) will as "to have his share of land laid out for him in Rehobeth Point".  He sold his third to his brother Edward (6) and moved to Dorchester County (into that portion that is now part of Caroline County).  He was believed to be either a shipbuilder or timbercutter.  He died in ca. 1770 based on the writing of his will & when it was probated.  His will is shown as "Appendix E" of this document.  Together George (7) and Sarah had 5 children.  Where they are interred is unknown.

Family Notes:  The birth order of the children has not been verified.  Mary (21) married "Peter Caulk".  Rebeckah (23) married a "Flaherty" and later she married a "Kirwan".  Nothing further is known of Sarah (22), or Elizabeth (24).



      William (8) was born the son of George, Jr. (2) & Elizabeth Kemp Collinson in ca. 1710.  He was married twice.  He first married "Mary Caulk" on February 18, 1744/45.  She was the daugher of Peter & Mary (Sockwell) Caulk.  Mary died in ca. 1753.  He then married "Priscilla" whose last name & parents are unknown prior to 1755.

      William (8) served in the Colonial Militia in a Talbot County Company commanded by Captain William Webb Haddaway of Bayside in 1748.  His brother Edward (6) served also.

      William (8) inherited a 3rd, appx. 43 acres, of his father's land known as "Rehobeth" & "Rehobeth Point".  The portion that he inherited was noted in his father George's (2) will as "to have his share of land laid out for him upon my dwelling plantation".  William (8) had moved to Dorchester County (which is today part of Caroline County) by 1755.  It is unknown why he moved from his farm.

      William (8) leased a farm from James Cullins in Dorchester county called "Hereds Choys" for a seven year terms in 1757.  William (8) sold his 3rd of his inherited land to his nephew George Collinson (11) in 1767 for £80.  Evidently after this sale William (8) purchase 125 acres plus some woodland (40 acres?) in Dorchester Cty which was noted as being on "Harvey’s Creek".  The property is noted as being called "Harvey’s Branch".

      William (8) died in 1770.  His home plantation on "Harvey’s Branch" was divided between his two oldest sons, Peter (25) & William (26).  He also stated in his will that it was his desire that his widow Priscilla be allowed to remain on his plantation during her widowhood.  It is pretty well documented that the first two children of William's (8) were from his first marriage to Mary Caulk.  I have concluded, based on how they are listed in his will that the first seven children were with Mary & the last four with Priscilla.  This could possibly be wrong.  However, Priscilla does mention that Eleanor (35), John (34) & George (33) are her children in her will.  William (8) had a total of 11 children.  All of William's (8) children appear to have changed their last name from "ColliNson" to "Collison" which is shown from here on out.  Possibly their father changed his last name as well.  William's (8) widow Priscilla later married Edward Minner of Sussex County DE.  Where they are interred is unknown but more than likely William (8) was buried on his farm.

George Collinson, (11)

      George (11) was born the son of Edward (6) & Alice (Caulk) Collison in ca. 1738.  He married "Frances Sands" who was the dau of a neighboring planter, Robert Sands.
      George (11) inherited all of his father Edward's (6) land, appx. 87 acres, upon his death.  He later purchase the other 3rd of this land from his uncle William (8) as show in the following recorded deed:

      "Came George Collinson and brought a deed of bargain and sale between William Collinson and Priscilla, his wife, of Dorchester County, planter, of one part and George Collinson, planter, of Talbot County, of the other part, for £80 current money....all that parcel of land being part of a tract of land called and known by name of Rehobeth...by meaning of the last will and testament of his father, George Collinson....."

      George (11) now owned all of "Rehobeth" & "Rehobeth Point", a total of 130 acres.  In 1783, the first tax assessment was made in Talbot County & the entry for George Collinson (11) reads as follows:

      "One tract of land called "Rehobeth" and "Rehobeth Point" with a new brick dwelling house not finished, two old frame dwelling houses, old quarters, old tobacco house, still house, log stable, cornhouse, meathouse, milkhouse, three small orchards, poor light sandy soil, much worn on the water - 80 acres arable (tillable) land and 50 acres woodland valued at 30 shillings per acre, total value in £195..0..0"

Richard Collinson, (20)

      Richard, (20) was born the only son of George (7) & Sarah (Aldern) Collinson in ca. 1739. He was apparently married twice. The name of his first wife is currently unknown, however, it is sure that all of his children were with her. He then married "Penelope Bush" on November 13, 1787 in Caroline County. She was the dau of Andrew Bush.
      Richard (20) purchased 160 acres of land called "Sherwin’s Chance" from one Robert Sherwin for £320 in 1786. Richard (20) became a planter with this purchase. He & Penelope sold 66 acres of land called "Loings Discovery" & "Retaliation" to someone unknown in 1787.
      Richard (20) apparently died shortly after his marriage to Penelope on November 13, 1787 as his estate inventory was filed on July 30, 1788 only 8 months later. After his death Penelope married William Harrison in Caroline County on March 13, 1790. Richard had 4 children.
