No apologies needed Philip, my brain is about to blow too.  I think it's bed time for me (work in the morning).  We'll leave it to crisane to cover the next shift, and check in tomorrow  ;D
Hellllllp.  :'(
I am looking in to the threads in between painting lounge/dining and yes my head is spinning too.  ???

I've found a couple of ancestry users who have some details of the CORKE family which tie up with what's been researched and reported on here (thanks everyone :) )

The marriage between Ada's brother George CORKE (b. 1886) and Madeline DANKS can be confirmed and one of their daughters, Eugenie has a son still living. No other details for Ada though I'm afraid. This is under 'Lofthouse Family Tree' on the ancestry website

From another users tree, Ada's brother Henry Edward CORKE (b. 23-01-1882) married an Eveline DRUSE in 1921 and their 2 daughters have had 6 children between them and many grandchildren.  Again, there's no new information on Ada.  This tree is called 'Bamber' if anyone wants to take a look.

These 2 CORKE brothers would have been Ada's closest siblings in age

Ever hopeful, I have messaged both users in case they have additional information about Ada not included on the trees so will report back if anything turns up!

Philip, you have been busy again haven't you!  Great job detailing all the descendants of George Corke, especially as your brain was hurting  ;D

Hopefully fulliautomatix will get a positive response from the Ancestry Trees, I'm going to have a look at them now.

Crisane, I hope you managed to get your painting finished  ;D

fulliautomatix I hope you'll get a response!

Should Rootschatters pause on this search for the moment?  There are several births/marriages in the 1970s listed below (mostly descendants of George CORKE) offering leads.

Could you let us know on your original thread
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=794284.0
what further research is needed?

All the best
Philip

So, Henry Edward Corke mentioned on this link is, I believe, Raymond Shepherds uncle (Henry's sister Edith Ada Corke was Raymonds father).

Back in June, I attempted to contact an ancestry member whose husband is descended from the Averil Evelyn Corke mentioned as a daughter on the link. Unfortunately she didn't reply and she hasn't been on the ancestry site for 7 months so obviously hasn't seen my message.  I have found her on Facebook though, so I will see if I get a reply that way. I will report back if I get any response!
