This site mentions John Sutcliffe Collinge.

……”The principals of the company were William Collinge who in 1883 lived at Wood Nook, 41 Brooklands Road, Burnley and John Sutcliffe Collinge who resided at Park House, Todmorden Road, also in Burnley. They were the sons of Alderman Luke Collinge who had established the business…..”

……”The furniture business went from strength to strength under William and John Sutcliffe Collinge. They were also the Burnley agents for the famous Singer Sewing Machine Company and they had a shop which specialised in this trade at 46 Manchester Road. Much of their furniture, in recent years, has been recognised by experts to have been of very good quality, and it is now collected. However, all I can say about when the firm closed is that Woolworths were in occu
pation of 106 to 110 St James's Street by 1926…..”

Taken from a book at Rochdale that indexed Lancashire and Cheshire Wills, I think this should be available from the LRO at Preston.
