    Name Meaning

    English: from Middle English colier, in most parts of the country ‘maker or seller of charcoal’, but in some areas (such as Bolton le Moors and Wigan, Lancashire) where coal measures were near the surface, ‘miner or seller of coal’ (in the modern sense, ‘fossil fuel’). The name was taken to Ireland from England and was first recorded there in 1305. In Petty's ‘census’ of 1659, it was recorded as a principal surname in Meath.

    English: occupational name from Middle English coilour, coliour, culliour, Old French coileor, coillour ‘tax collector’. Surnames with this origin seem to have died out in Britain.

    French (northern): from collier ‘collar’, a metonymic occupational name for a maker of collars.
