The Children

The following pages contain family trees and brief accounts of the lives of James & Margaret's children, or at least of the seven who had families of their own. Albert, who did not have a family, is mentioned below. For some of these people (e.g. Harry) the available information is sparse. Any contributions to this website of additional facts or stories, however minor, about any of the seven would be very welcome.

For many years he lived in the city at the Australian Club. He was known to many of the Corbins, who 'went to Uncle Bert to have their eyes done'.
