William Corry MD

One of my great-grandfathers was William Corry. He was born in County Tyrone in about 1850. He was a surgeon and was in London about 1888-1889, before emigrating to Australia. Does anyone have any more information on him? Or, does anyone know how to find out about doctors? What, or if, they were working in a hospital.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

I have been told that my Grandad was found on the streets of Carlisle aged 11 years and taken to a training ship in Sunderland, this would have been in 1909. I cannot find any training ships in Sunderland does anyone know of where he might have been sent. Also he joined the army aged 14 which seems strange as I understand training ships were used to train boys up for the Navy. Any suggestions ...

George Parker

Any information on George Parker (b.1934 possible Macclesfield)?
His father was Herebert Ivor Parker (b. 1894) and his mother was Ruth Wardle Parker (nee Rutter - 1903-1953).
He was in the forces in the fifties, but that's as much as we know.
Thanks - Julie
