3.Corelli WINDEATT's Eleven, (?-1895)

There is a mention in a book called "Music's Great Days in the Spas and Watering-places"  of a group referred to as "Corelli Windeatt's Eleven".  The above programme extract lists eleven players but is unlikely to have been referred to as "Corelli WINDEATT's Eleven" because it looks as if Corelli's father, Charles, is still the conductor at this date.  However, this particular group could well be the basis for what was later known "Corelli Windeatt's Eleven" after his father was hospitalised in the Lunatic Asylum (which happened at some point during the next three years).  According to the book Corelli WINDEATT' s Eleven was operation until 1895 - and this is probably the date when Corelli and Fred moved to London.

Further information about the various family members can be found via the links in the above programme extracts.
