He is listed as Currier But see TNA correspondence 1 January 1820 from William Holder
I am sorry to give you so much trouble but beg to state that the person by the name of SCOTT mentioned in my last had been insirted thro' mistake he having declined going with the party at that time, it ought to have been Wm. COLLIER, by trade a Laborer Aged 20 years which alteration I trust will be complyed with. (National Archives, Kew, CO48/52, 407)
The Agent clearly misheard Currier for Collier.
Bap 12.10.1800 at Tredington, Glos. the son of William and Elizabeth Collier. (Tredington is 3.3 miles from Bishops Cleeve)
