Journal by Francie

Tee-names: Where Alexander lived was a coastal fishing community, and "Cornal" is believed to have been the tee name associated with Alexander Flett and his immediate family and decendents (including George). A tee name was a sort of unofficial fisher-family nickname that were used within the community to distinguish between the many family branches who shared the relatively few surnames and first names used in these communities. Alexander Flett was known to his pals as Sandy Cornal (Saunders' line fishing company). His youngest son migrated to Australia in 1852.
