Hi everyone

During my family research I have come across a Henrietta SELLERS who
married my GGrandfather James COWLING 15.09.1872 in Haslingden,

I've found Herietta SELLERS on the 1871 census aged 25yrs lodging in
Spotland, Bacup, Lancashire. It shows her place of birth as Essex,

I've searched everywhere to find Colleywessian but it appears not to
exist. It could be simply an error on the transcriber's part but I've
looked at the original and it does look right.

Does anyone know of this place or similar in the Essex area.

Many thanks in advance
