Daisy is related to Arnold Ridley (William Arnold Ridley), a playwright and actor.

Daisy’s maternal grandfather was Roger Picton Fawkner-Corbett (the son of William Victor Fawkner-Corbett and Dorothy Frances Bauer/Barr). William was born under the surname “Corbett”, and added the “Fawkner-” to his surname; he was the son of William G. Corbett and Florence. Daisy’s great-grandmother Dorothy was the daughter of William Bauer (whose own father, William Ernest Bauer, was German, and whose own mother, Rose Barnes, was English, from Norfolk, England), and of Minnie Louisa Cowley.

Daisy’s maternal grandmother was Isobel Sheila Lake (the daughter of Charles Thomas Connet Lake and Mary Irene Smerdon). Charles was the son of John Lake and Emma Elizabeth. Mary was the daughter of John Sidney Smerdon and Mary Parnell Newman.

Any paternal ancestral details?

Well, they say her great-uncle was actor Arnold Ridley, which would mean he was her paternal grandfather’s brother. This is odd, because Arnold Ridley appears to have had no siblings.
