Comments about this page

I'm descended from Josiah Collis and Hannah (nee Blows).  I think that this cottage on the corner of Cross Lane and Lotfield Street (opposite the once Lotfield Tavern and later Duke of Wellington in Lotfield Street), is their old cottage.  The location is confirmed from the 1901 census and the old photos of Hannah with horse and members of her family outside her cottage. 

Yes - this is indeed Josiah & Hannah's cottage, though in their day it was occupied by more than one family.
