It is some considerable since you posted your enquiry - but I believe you and I must surely be related as my father, Des Gidney, was the great nephew of Jackie and Lizzie Collins, whom I guess were your parents or grandparents. My dad was close to them as a boy and got in touch with them much later, after their golden wedding was announced in th Evening Gazette. I met them once about 25 years ago, when they talked about the family origins and I recorded a conversation with them. I still have the tape. Lizzie, of course, was giving me the details, while my dad was chatting with Jackie. So part of the time it's a bit of a competition to find out what's being said (my Dad being a garulous sort of chap (still around at 78).
I'm sure you've found a bit more out since 2001 - the date of the Ancestry,co.ul enquiry. But if I can help in some small way I'll be pleased to hear from you.
