One of the mysteries in my mothers family is whatever happened to her Grandfather. John Frederick Corbett was born in 1856 in Aston, the son of Frederick Corbett - steel pen maker and Ann Elizabeth his wife. In 1878 he married Amelia Smallwood, also of Aston and they appear in the 1891 census with their daughter Ettie Amelia Corbett. In the 1901 census Amelia Corbett is living in Albert Road, Aston with a number of 'lodgers?' and her daughter and there is no mention of John Frederick. He does not appear as having died in any of the intervening years in any records. Family rumour/myth/legend (call it what you will) has it the he died in Hungary and there were some postcards and stamps from that country that I remember as a child. A search of deaths recorded abroad at the family history centre (when it was in Faringdon) revealed no record of his name. I have been aware of BHF members supplying details from Kellys directories and from old newspapers, and I just wondered if there might be any information that I was not aware of available from any sources that I know nothing about. In the 1911 census Amelia, he daughter and lodgers are recorded as living at 160 Slade Road, Erdington.
