Cornerville School

An advert in a 1898 issue of the Skegness Herald reveals the existence of ‘Cornerville School’ in Skegness, which I have never before seen documented:

Gathering information from the censuses, Mrs Catherine Garner and her unmarried daughter, Lucie Garner lived on Wainfleet Road between Robin Hood Terrace and Eldon Villa, their property being described as a private school. Lucie is described as an organist and a school mistress, whilst her mother is described as the proprietoress of a private school and later a retired school mistress.
Catherine Garner’s husband, James, was a butcher and their son, Robert was a builder. The family came to Skegness from Normanton in Lincolnshire.
