John Robert Corrie, born c.1862, was my great great grandfather. He was born in Lancashire and appears on 2 census after his marriage but none that I can find before.
He married Eliza Cullen and had four daughters and one son. His daughters were Elizabeth, Annie, Bearice and Ida (my great grandmother) and his son was named George.
My mother thinks that John's father was Scottish and family myth has it that his profession is listed as "gentleman" on John's birth certificate.
If anyone knows anything about this family I'd love to hear from you.
