(19 April 1835 - 13 January 1910)
     Rev Robert Reeves Collins was born on 19 April 1835 in Dublin, Ireland. He was the son of William Collins, solicitor & Sarah nee Smith. He was christened on 13 May 1835 in Crumlin, Dublin.
     Robert matriculated at Trinity College, Dublin, between 1 July 1853 and 1859. He gained a Bachelor of Arts. Robert was made a deacon in 1859 and priest in 1860. Curate at Kilmahon, diocese of Cloyne at Cork from 1859. He was appointed a mission priest and came to Australia.
Rev Robert Reeves Collins married Mary Jane Halahan, daughter of George Augustus Frederick Halahan and Jane Fleming, on 29 May 1861 in St George's, Dublin. She was described as the wife of the Rev. Robert Reeves Collins of Castlemaine in the colony of Victoria in her father's 1863 will.
     Rev Robert Reeves Collins and Mary Jane Halahan arrived per "Lightning" in August 1861 at Victoria. Robert was a clergyman at Castlemaine, Victoria, in 1863. He was mentioned in the 1863 will of his father-in-law. He was also at Ballarat. Robert was appointed the second (but first resident) resident priest at Edenhope in 1864. In 1882, due to Grandfathers declining health he resigned from the church and the Parish was conducted from Harrow, and it was not until 1915 that a second resident priest was appointed to Edenhope and a new church and residence built near the bridge.
     Robert resided at Collins Lake, Edenhope, 1872. He and his family lived in the rectory until 1872, at which time he settled at Collins Lake where he had selected land, and built a house of wattle and daub, with a thatched roof on the East bank of the lake.
Collins Lake was then named Lake Telangma, which was named by him after a lake in Ireland, but renamed Collins Lake after my Grandfathers death. In those days the large Stations around Edenhope were being sub-divided into 320 acre lots for selection, and my Grandfather was lucky to have been able to select about six lots of land. He continued to service his parish from the property at Telangma, the Parish being a 90 mile radius, and Grandfather travelled on a white Arab horse named "Torpedo", and some of the older people talked about his speed on horseback.
In 1901 my Grandparents sold most of their land at Telangina and built a cottage on the corner of Elizabeth street and Sydney Road, at which time they purchased land from there to the Airport. The Airport land was donated to the Edenhope District by my Mother. My Grandfather was a hobby oil painter, some would say quite good, and I am proud to have some of his original paintings hanging in my house.
Robert was head of the United Christian church at Edenhope from 1884 to 1885. In the register of Victorian clergy, he is listed as Robert Reeves Collins, United Christian church, Edenhope, head of denomination. He was registered April 22, 1884 and it was cancelled by his own authority, denomination having ceased to exist, June 19 1885.
     Robert died on 13 January 1910 in Edenhope, Victoria, aged 74. He was buried in Edenhope.

The Gen-Medieval mailing list discussed: There were actually four John Comyns of Badenoch the first John known as the Red I married successively Eve (mother of his older children) and 2nd Alice whom Young thought was a Lindsay but who has been proved by Douglas Richardson to have been a member of the Roos family. A thorough discussion of this identification in his recent Magna Carta Ancestry under the subject Clarell.
John the Red Comyn I was succeeded by his eldest son by Eve, John the Black Comyn I who married Alianora de Baliol, daughter of John de Baliol by Devorguilla, eldest dauhter of Alan, Lord of Galloway`s 2nd marriage to Margaret, eldest daughter of Prince David de Scotia, Earl of Huntingdon John the Black Comyn I d 1303 Lochindorb Castle had resigned his titles and rights to candidacy for the Scots crown to his eldest son John the Red Comyn II, like his father and grandfather, Lord of Badenoch , Guardian or regent of Scotland several times between 1286-1306. married Joan, daughter of William de Valence, Earl of Pembroke ( de Valence was half brother to King Henry III of England and so uncle to King Edward I) it would seem that an agreement was struck by the Red Comyn II and Robert Brus, Earl of Carrick by which if Comyn surrendered his estates and titles to Brus, Brus would support his ascension to the Scots throne yet if Brus surrendered his estates and titles to Comyn, Comyn was to support Brus becoming King. evidently Comyn decided to make sure Brus kept his word by informing Edward I of the pact and sent a messenger who was intercepted. Brus demanded to meet Comyn, then at Dalswinton, another of his castles at the nearby Church of the Grey Friars in Dumfries. Comyn went, each entering the church with one kinsman. Brus and Comyn argued and Comyn was stabbed by Brus and fell near the high altar. one of Brus` nephews, Christopher Seton apparently was with him and He killed Comyn`s uncle Robert Comyn. They left the church in a hurry, Comyn the Red being wounded but very much alive. On their return to Brus` castle of Lochmaben. He told his followers of what had transpired saying " I fear I have not slain the Red Comyn" a follower of his, one Kirkpatrick uttered: " I`ll make sure." and went and did just that.
John the Red Comyn II`s son John the Black Comyn II used the title of Lord of Badenoch. He was married to Margeret, daughter of John, 1st Lord Wake of Liddell and had a son shortly before his death who was named Aymer Comyn. John the Black Comyn II was slain in 1314 at the Battle of Bannockburn. his infant son died 2 years later and Margaret Wake married Edmund Plantagenet, 1st Earl of Kent.
