Leslie Corona Newman
« on: Sunday 22 March 20 16:37 GMT (UK) »
What are the chances that now of all times I discover a distant relative, Leslie Corona Newman...

Born in 1902, probably named in honour of the coronation. A surprising number of children named Corona, Coronation, or a variant, born around that time.

Link for Corona North's obituary. She was born in 1922.
 In the link it says that she was named after a variety of rhododendron.  Maybe the rhododendron was named in honour of a coronation.

I have a vague feeling that it might also be a Saint's name? (Corona, not Leslie)
Threlfall (Southport), Isherwood (lancs & Canada), Newbould + Topliss(Derby), Keating & Cummins (Ireland + lancs), Fisher, Strong& Casson (all Cumberland) & Downie & Bowie, Linlithgow area Scotland . Also interested in Leigh& Burrows,(Lancashire) Griffiths (Shropshire & lancs), Leaver (Lancs/Yorks) & Anderson(Cumberland and very elusive)
