Hi Everyone I'm liking the possibility of this Tunley connection when looking at my tree i already have Margaret on the 1891 census and Lily is there as a visitor age 4 but on the census i have she has been transcribed as Donley!!

And on the other census with Isabella it would seem that's my Robert as he's the correct age and the place of birth is what's listed on the other census, so i wonder why it was stated in the paper that he went to a home? Unless he did for a while and then when Isabella got married again he came back home? There also doesn't seem to appear a birth for a Robert Tunley which in this case is a good sign that this could be Robert. Thanks all so much for you're help

Back to this! Can anyone please find Isabella on the 1901 census or a death or another marriage i can't seem to find anything. I haven't been able to find son Thomas Tunley on 1901 census either but have him on the 1911 also son Robert Willliam Corner/Tunley i can't find on the 1901 census i believe he married a Rose Hawksby in 1908 in Middlesbrough there are a few births after this the first been 1912 and in Middlesbrough but can't actually find the couple on the 1911 census either!

I gave you Isabella in 1901 earlier with W H Smith

the Isabella Corner who married Alfred Showler was the daughter of another Robert Corner, there's a marriage notice in the online newspapers.

I can't find a corresponding marriage, but this family has a couple of points that match, writing on the census not very clear
1891 28 High Dean St, Middlesbrough RG12/4009 folio 38 pg 27
Thomas Tunley head mar 34 engine driver b.Briley Hill, Staffs
Isabel wife 34 b Whitby, Yorks
Robert son 14 b. West Hartlepool, Durham
Lily dau 4 b. Middlesbrough
Thomas son 1 b. Skinygrove

death reg Thomas Tunley 34 june qtr 1893 Middlesbro vol 9d pg 349

1901 census Lily Tunley is in Stokesley, where the Foxton family are in some census years. Her birth cert would confirm mother's maiden name
Lily Tunley Middlesbro sept qtr 1887 vol 9d pg 522

There's a possible marriage june qtr 1899 for Isabella Corner to William Henry Smith Middlesbro vol 9d pg 1065 (the other 2 people on the page are together on the 1901 census) & then vaguely possible census
1901 21 Hutchinson St, Middlesbro RG13/4577 folio 107 pg 13
W H Smith head mar 51 mason's labourer b. Northampton
Isabella wife 48 b. Middlesbro
Chas son 11 b. Skiningrove
Thos son 10 b. Middlesbro
Gertie dau 8 b. Guisbrough
Thos W son mar 28 ironworker b. Middlesbro
Gib W grandson 7 b. Middlesbro
Thos John grandson 3 b. Middlesbro

I do apologise i must have been away with the fairies when re reading through last night! I'll look into that now!

I'm unsure if this is Isabella because if she got remarried her name should be Tunley Not Corner?

the Isabel[la] with Thomas Tunley looks really good, and perhaps this is why there is no marriage to be found:

Daily Gazette for Middlesbrough 29 February 1884
This (Friday) morning at the Middlesbrough Police Court, before Mr C.J. Coleman (Stipendiary), Thomas Tunley was sent to gaol for a month with hard labour for deserting his wife and family and leaving them chargeable to the Middlesbrough Union.

But she didn't marry Thomas Tunley as he was married to someone else, so she was still Corner.

Hi Iím very new to this family tree search -only just started looking. Rose Ann Hawkesby was my great grandmother and died in 1977 at the age of 86 years. She was married to Robert Corner whoís father was also Robert Corner who died when his fishing boat was lost just outside Whitby harbour. Rose Ann and Robert junior had 2 children Margaret my grandmother and Robert her brother.

Hi Lisa, I would be very interested for any information you have on Robert Corner. I have been searching for days to find out what happened to his mother Isabella to no avail. My own dad remembers as a child visiting relatives in Whitby called Foxton, although he was very young and doesnít remember any details. Iím thinking that as Isabella was young when she was widowed (27) she remarried and I wonder if this wasnít Thomas Tunley. Mentioned in pervious post, on here. Son Robert William seems to have been given the name Tunley (1891 census) His age and Isabella's age certainly fit. He was certainly Corner when he married Rose Ann Hawksby my dad remembers visiting an auntie of his mothers in a street off Canon street Middlesbrough called aunt Lil, (? Lily Tunley) Dad also remembers the family story of Robert Corner drowning as the boat the Flying Spray sank just outside Whitby harbour.
