WARNING:  Based on circumstantial evidence, my assumption here is that our couple was having children out of wedlock before they married.  This scenario needs confirmation.

My first assumption here was that Amelia must have had a prior marriage to a CORBIN, but I can find no earlier marriage for her.  What I do find is birth records for the children under the name of Amelia CORBIN, alone.  What this suggests, to me, is that James & Amelia were having children out of wedlock before he finally married her.

Name Sex Baptism Location Father Mother Film
Horatio Corbin M 22 Jan 1840 Saint Lucy, Barbadoes, Caribbean   Melia Corbin 1157940
Elizabeth Ann Corbin F 28 May 1841 Saint Lucy, Barbadoes, Caribbean   Amelia Corbin 1157940
Alexander Corbin M 14 Jan 1844 Saint Lucy, Barbadoes, Caribbean   Amelia Corbin 1157940
Joseph Howard Corbin M 11 Jul 1847 Saint Lucy, Barbadoes, Caribbean   Amelia Corbin 1157940
If the children had simply been illegitimate, they would be surnamed CONNELL.
In other words, if their father wasn't a CORBIN, why would they have been baptized "Corbin"?
