Administrative / biographical background:

This collection comprises material relating to the Trelawny/Collins family of Ham House, Ham, Plymouth. Robert Trelawny, a wealthy merchant, Mayor, and eventually M.P. for Plymouth, built the house in 1639. He had also secured the development rights to an area, including Richmond Island, in New England, America. A descendant of his, Mary Trelawny married George Collins of Kenilworth, Warwickshire in 1784 and they took up residence at Ham. Their son the Reverend Charles Trelawny Collins became the curate of St Pancras Chapel, Pennycross in 1821. Ham House, a Grade 2 listed building, was given to Plymouth City Council in 1947 and was eventually divided into flats in 1989
