Good morning,

Thankyou for all the information above about the Corner family.
I am looking at tracing my family back further, but unable to find any details about Henry Corner's birth, or parents Robert and Sarah
I am the granddaughter of Hugh Corner and Edith Womsley(Edith was pregnant with her daughter at the time of Hugh's death),  great granddaughter to Amos Corner and Hilda Fletcher.

Hugh CORNER - Father Amos Arthur; Mother Hilda
Marriage 1944 Hugh CORNER and Edith Alma WOMSLEY; Rockdale
Death Hugh CORNER - 23/11/1952, age 34, SMH 25NOV1952 (BDM has death reg 1953)

I have been given information that the Corner's are related to Lt Robert Sedgley Corner, lieutenant on HMA Pandora, and later Superintendent of Marine Police in Malta.

Any assistance would be greatfully appreciated.
Deborah.

Hi Welcome to RootsChat,  it is a great place for help with family history.

May I please ask you a couple of questions ....

 :) Do you have the NSW BDM  information recorded on the official registrations for Henry CORNER? 

 :) Or perhaps the Probate records as hopefully there will be some clues for us to help you follow up further on those official records. 

 :) Do you have Sarah's nee name?  (Henry's Mum)

In meanwhile, I am sure the original poster will receive a notification that there's new posts on this thread, so hopefully they will be along shortly.

If you reply a couple more times, even just to say Hi,  you will be able to receive Personal/Private Messages and likely exchange email addresses without the rest of the world knowing your email address.

Fingers crossed,

Cheers,  JM

Thanks Essie!

I'm planning on spending some time in our Narional Archives (my former workplace) to try and track back a little further.
Amos Arthur Corner was my maternal great Grandfather, so hoping to track back until pre Australian settlement.

Keeping a track of any updates if they arise.
Thanks again!
Deb
