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.
