There is a baptism in October 1905 (birth September 1905) in Cornwell, Oxfordshire for a Priscilla Sherriff to Thomas and Hilderay.  They were living in Lichfield, and he was a hawker. Appreciate that year is out, so will look further.

Apply for that death certificate to see who the informant was?  (Or were there some children born after that date?)

Do you have any of the childrens birth certificates as they may give a clue as to Cornelius and his occupation.

Which child had the first grandchild (with name and birth year) - or is the child still living?

Cannot see 7 children in Rugby - did they move around, or could Cornelius have had a second marriage?
