I better put this here first ( although I found it after doing all the research below.....:-))

I found a few things that may interest you....Cornelius was a witness in a murder inquest in 1870:

from a quick read ( its long article ), it seems Cornelius used an alias of NEAL or NEIL - you will find the article quite amazing for its detail - if not for the shock it will give you!

I also found in 1796, a James and Cornelius CHIDGEY were bricklayers living Marmaduke St London - they became bankrupts.
I also found your Cornelius in the censuses, living with his parents, Cornelius, bricklayer b 1815 and Sarah..along with siblings. I found your Tree on Ancestry and didn't find your Cornelius' parents, so thought you might like to know all that info is available.

Chidgey passenger arrival 1897:

plus you can see your early family getting the ' Freedom of the City"....I can email this directly if you are interested:

London, England, Freedom of the City Admission Papers, 1681-1925 about Cornelius Chidgey
Name: Cornelius Chidgey
Residence County: Middlesex
Admission Date: 5 May 1795
Master's Name: William Chidgey - a citizen and cooper
Father's Name: James Chidgey - bricklayer in the parish of St George in the East

James was b 1781 and was the son of Cornelius and Christiana, nee DOWSETT who married 01 May 1780 - both could sign their names

You will also find an article about Saul FLATAU's father Will - they were Jewish:

The Argus (Melbourne, Vic. :Friday 6 November 1896

That Cornelius was b 1756 and died 1824

actually there is quite a bit in the papers fr the FLATAU family

going back to NZ...I found a marriagae for a Lydia to a Charles COX in 1882 -But I think its the sister to your man

these are their children - looking very promising

I'll send this off and keep looking for Lydia Henrietta - and Cornelius, alias NEAL/NEIL!
