Colabeen in Brighton

by ClairK1980 28 August 2009

I’m looking for anyone who can shed some light on the Colabeen (and other various spellings) family in Brighton and the surrounding areas. I have a Charles Colabeen and an Arthur Colabeen in my family tree that I can’t trace from 1891 onwards. What with them being male, you would think the name would exist somewhere…. I have traced them on census’ as far as possible, Arthur may have become an ‘Earl’ (that was his stepfathers name) but am now totally stuck.
Does the name COLABEEN (Collabeen/Colabean/Collobean/Collobeen) mean anything to anyone?!?!
