Hi Kathy. Thank you VERY much for all this Census information.

Some people on the Liverpool Mailing List have offered me different pieces of information on my CORKILL (and LEWIS) family, and this matches up with what they told me.

I'm pretty sure that the oldest sons of Evan CORKILL both became Mariners or fishermen, or had something to do with the sea. So, Edward CORKILL and Lewis CORKILL were either "at sea" or living someplace else in 1871.

And, Evan CORKILL was one of ten children, so he might have had relatives in many places. I just found out this year that it was his brother, John CORKILL, who brought the 5 younger children to the Liverpool Sheltering Homes ~1873. At the time, Evan was on his way to Africa, or some such location. Both Evan and John were residents of the West Derby or Toxteth Park part of Liverpool.

I'd love to find any of the CORKILL descendants to find out if the ones in Liverpool remained in contact with the 5 children who were sent to Nova Scotia. But, there doesn't seem to be a way to find out.

Enjoy your day.


P.S. I also found out this year that Mrs. Elizabeth CORKILL was from a QUAYLE family in Whitehaven, and at least one other researcher is studying the same family.
