Caroline Corner Medium

1855-1913

UK - Mental Mediumship - Automatic Writing

 

I believe she's the sister of Captain Edward Elgie Corner, who's the husband of Florence Cook, the materializing medium who captured the attention (and the heart?) of William Crookes, and the attention (and capital) of Charles Blackburn, one of the grey eminences behind Spiritualism in England in the 1870s and 1880s.

I could be wrong about that equation (there are several Caroline Corners in the UK census data for the relevant period), but what's pretty clear is (a) Caroline, the sister of Edward Corner, is involved as a witness and participant in Florence Cook's materializations of Katie King (and Miss Showers' materializations of her various controls as well), and (b) beginning in the early 1880s, a Miss Caroline Corner appears frequently in the English Spiritualist periodicals of record, as correspondent (mostly on philanthropic topics associated with various enterprises benefiting poor children in London) and subject (mostly around the publication of her various books). But, pretty much whenever Adelma (von) Vay is mentioned, Caroline Corner is nearby: as correspondent, translator, or dogs-body.

 

Corner's closest link to Adelma is her 1882 text, My Visit To Styria, which recounts events associated with Corner's visit to Vay and her husband. Her other works include:

1879 - Twixt Will & Fate and The Slinkensmirk Family: Two Stories in One Volume; second edition published by James Burns in 1884. The first is an occult love story, the second a piece of "vulgar" social commentary.

1882 - My Visit to Styria

1884 - Rhineland (published by James Burns on subscription, proceeds to be used for food and clothing for poor children)

1886 - Beyond The Ken: A Mystical Story of Styria (published by James Burns)

1908 - Ceylon, the Paradise of Adam: The Record of Seven Years' Residence in the Island

1910 - Crown, Coronet and Clover

 

Corner appears frequently in Theosophical and secular magazines between 1900 and 1910, writing about "Black Magic in Ceylon", "Heathen Rites and Superstitions in Ceylon" and "A Devil Dance in Ceylon" among other things.

As far as her life trajectory goes, if I am right that Caroline Corner the friend of Adelma is also Caroline Corner the sister-in-law of Florence Cook, then:

Caroline lives with her parents and siblings through the late 1880s, in the environs of London. In the early 1890s, she travels to Ceylon, where she lives, meeting and marrying Arthur Francis Ohlmus (Dutchman, born. 1849, died 1899), in July1892 in Colombo, Ceylon, after which she writes as Caroline Corner-Ohlmus.

When Olhmus dies, she returns to England, where she lives, writing as Caroline Corner-Ohlmus (and variations) until... she dies, in Kensington, in 1913

Corner was a medium. She reports episodes of automatic writing, as well as prophetic dreams and waking premonitions. There's little of this apparent in her readily-obtainable work, but what there is suggests that she did not want to go down the route of the kind of physical mediumship practiced by her sister-in-law; she was satisfied to be an instrument of the power giving within the Circle.

There's also evidence, in the Spiritualist periodicals of the 1880s, that Corner was engaged in various translations of Vay's work, including some of Vay's diaries.
