William COLLETT + Esther Ellen SWEENEY - Paeroa

NOTE
... a message from Terry informed me the name I had as Swny should read Sweeney. A number of entries in NZBDM have spelt it Swny but I have changed the spelling as Terry is a direct descendent
... another message from Terry (28 Feb 2016) reads: you have William COLLETT born in Epping Forest, London on 31 January 1851. What is your evidence for this? It does not agree with what you have further down that he died on 24 April 1929 aged 69 (I have verified this)
... and yet another message from Terry (16 Nov 2016) reads: you have James Leach Collett 1899 - 1993 and died 8 October 1953 aged 87 neither of those death dates makes him 87. The government BDM (1993/32638) has born 28 July 1899 and died 9/1/1993, making him 93. This is the only James Leach Collett listed. I propose these are the correct dates: could you check your sources?
