Hi: I have only just started researching my Corner family. I am a little stuck right now, until I do some further research, but here is what I have to date:

My ggggrandfather was George Corner (don't know where he was born yet)
He married Lillias Higgins on April 3, 1800, in Canongate, Edinburgh, Scotland.

Their children:

Christian b. 10 July, 1801, St. Cuthberts, Edinburgh,
Anne b. 17 April, 1805, St. Cuthberts, Edinburgh
Elizabeth b. 29 May, 1807, St. Cuthberts, Edinburgh
Andrew b. 26 October, 1810, St. Cuthberts, Edinburgh
Margaret b. 4 May, 1813

Andrew is my gggrandfather (he was a cabinet maker)
m. Janet Anderson 10 July 1832, St. Cuthberts, Edinburgh

Their children (all that I have traced so far)

Lillias b. 18 January, 1833, St. Cuthberts, Edinburgh
George b. ? 1840 ?

George is my gggrandfather (he was a cabinet maker)
m. Isabella Smith 27 January 1860, Edinburgh Parish

Their children:

Andrew b. 23 January, 1861, Edinburgh parish
Margaret b. 27 August, 1862, Edinburgh Parish
Isabella b. 11 November, 1864, Edinburgh Parish
George b. 25 October, 1866, Edinburgh Parish
Jessie b. 20 July, 1968, Edinburgh Parish
John b. 31 January, 1870, Edinburgh
Mary Ann b. 16 March, 1872, Edinburgh
Lillias b. 22 September, 1873, Edinburgh

John is my greatgrandfather
m. Elizabeth Weir 10 August, 1894, South Leith

Their children (need more research here)

John b. 1898, North Leith
Alexander b. November, 1900,

Alexander was my father, he married my mother, Jane McDonald, in November, 1922, in Edinburgh

I have other information re marriages etc. Have also done some research of Corners from Muthill, Perth, and Shetlands.
