Will try again!
My immediate thought was Colleyweston (sometimes written as two words)
which is in Northants, but quite close to the Lincolnshire border.
Are the census entries either side of HENRIETTA (not James <g>) places
in Essex because the enumerator could have written Essex by mistake.
For Essex, there's Colchester and also Colne Engaine to consider.
