red mail Georgina Cassalman/Adams/Hudleston
Georgina Cassalman was born in 1918, the daughter of Louis Cassalman and Alice (nee Excell). Alice probably died as a consequence of this birth. When Georgina married John Hudleston in 1945 her surname was given as Adams. I have always assumed that she was adopted by an Adams family (or perhaps she married an Adams) but I have not been able to establish a link to such a family. Can anyone help? Alan

red mail Cornock family Wotton Under Edge
I have traced my great grandfather Sidney Cornock as moving from W-U-Edge to the Rowley Regis/Cradley Heath area of Worcestershire and then to Ludlow Shropshire during the last part of 1800s. He married (Beatrice?) Mary Beddoes who was born in Rowley Regis. They had several children. He worked as a colporteur ie seller of religious tracts. It would seem that many Cornocks moved to this area of the Midlands, seemingly for work? I am fascinated by the repetition of several names within these families and wonder if they are linked eg Susan, Beatrice, Amelia and William, Sidney, Andrew. I would welcome any further links, info etc regarding , the family, these common names and anything about why so many Cornocks moved around the same time to the Midlands, particularly this cluster in Worcestershire.
