CORBETT'S of Grimsby, Lincolnshire.

Journal by Marie Tuplin

I am looking for some information on Susannah CORBETT (nee MUNDELL) b 1862 in Grimsby, Lincolnshire, her husband Edward CORBETT b circa 1860 in London, their son Christopher David CORBETT b 1903 in Grimsby, Lincolnshire & their daughter Susannah Eva CORBETT b 1901 in Grimsby, Lincolnshire. There may have been more children plus a married daughter Phoebe FINNIGAN (nee CORBETT) b 1894 in Grimsby, Lincolnshire& her husband Patrick FINNIEGAN circa 1888(details unknown), they may well have had a very young family with them.
The family stories are that they all died in a terrible earth quake, they appear to be on the Auckland West electrol role in 1928 so far but I have very limited information available.
Any help would be appreciated, Marie Tuplin.

Archway - Archives of New Zealand I just had a quick look for FINNEGAN and think I've found your Phoebe...

CORBETT Family Genealogy Forum search this Form for keyword 'Zealand', you may find a connection. See also FINNIGAN family genealogy forum. And click on 'Home', 'Countries', 'New Zealand' to find New Zealand Genealogy Forum, then search for 'Corbett'.

You may find more information on the CORBETTs in England by going to Rootschat register as a new user, click on 'enter rootschat', goto their 'England - General' board and post a lookup request perhaps at their Lincolnshire childobard '1871 Census lookup request' looking for your Susannah CORBETT aged 9 years? You need to find their marriage.

Best wishes,

Thank you for all the leads you have shown me.It appears that the family stories were not true. So if there is anyone out there with a connection to the family, it would be great to hear from you, there is so much we can share, Marie.
