Trying to find Collinge

I am researching the name Collinge from the Blackley area of Manchester. My great grandfather Charles Collinge, born in 1857 was a corn merchant and owned several properties in the Chapel Lane area of Blackley. His father was also Charles Collinge, born 1820. They attended Blackley Unitarian Chapel and before the grave yard was vandalised I managed to get valuable information from head stones. I know there are a few Collinges left in M/C. I have managed to get back to my GGGGG grand father, James Collinge, born approx. 1727. So come on all you Collinges, it's a great name, let's talk to each other!
