"Whilst staying at The Bowyer Arms, my Mother Josephine, Colly's Neice, opened the door of a room and, found uncle Colly in flames in his chair. My Father was granted compasionate leave from the army because mum was so traumatised. In uncle Colly's will Georgie is named as Georgiana Johnson Wilson, yet you refer to her as Georgina and say her maiden name was Mathews.  Do you know where the Johnson came from?

The photograph's I e-mailed you of Colly's sisters Imogen and Agnes Julia are, I think, beautiful and the one you have on your site of Colly and Georgie is also wonderfull.
I am sure that there must be further photographs of Honor, the eldest sister who married Edward Fisher, and of Thomas Pilgrim Wilson
(didn't they all have wonderful names), the eldest son.  It is my quest at the moment to try and track down the Fisher's and see if anyone has a photograph.
In the 1901 census the Fishers were living at 75 Morning Lane Bethnal Green, my grandfather, Joseph Dawson (unmarried at the time but married later that year),  was a lodger with them, and at 143 Morning Lane was Christiana Maria Wilson,  Honor. Agnes Julia and Collingwood's Mother and Joseph Dawsons future Mother in Law. This address was the Lord Nelson public house. 

Uncle Colly owned several pubs in London.  My Mother seemed to think that he had something to do with the Punch Tavern in Fleet Street, at least mother used to work there,  he had the Duke of York, The Steam Packet and the Bowyer Arms.  I think I told you that Both my Mother's and my Fathers parents died in the 1918 flu epidemic.  My parents both went to the same orphanage in Ongar,  Uncle Colly offered to set Aunt Em' up in business if she would take on mum and her brother's and sisters and this she did.  Colly bought her the Steam Packet in Nine Elms and imogen took on the five children and bought them up as her own..Imogen did not have children of her own.
