Re: CORKILL Families/Children .. Arriving Canada .. 1870's,1880's
Hello.I just thought I'd offer some updated information.
I found out a few months ago that Evan CORKILL's wife was Elizabeth QUAYLE who had been born in Whitehaven, Cumberland/Cumbria, ~1830.
They married in Liverpool, England, in 1852, and probably moved there around the time of their marriage.
And, I just found out yesterday that Evan and Elizabeth had two children born during the 1850's - before their daughter, Mary Elizabeth, was born in 1860.They were sons, William CORKILL and Lewis CORKILL.(I had thought that they might have had a son, Evan CORKILL, but the name was not mentioned on the 1861 census.)
Mary and her four younger siblings all went to the Liverpool Sheltering Homes in 1873 after the death of their mother.Their two older brothers might have been already out on their own in 1873.The 5 children were "shipped to Canada" in 1874 and 1875.I have not had time to find out where the 2 older children were living at that time.
