This question is a little confusingly worded. Robert and Charlotte were married in 1879 and I've found several census entries for them. I assume you meant Charlotte was Fanny's grandmother in which case you must have meant 1940 not 1840. Robert and Charlotte did have at least two sons who could be Fanny's father but I have been unable to identify her birth record. Are you sure she was born in Wales? And how close to 1940? And do you know whether Fanny was short for Frances? The closest match was a Frances Copeland born in Hammersmith, London in 1945, although her father was Thomas which could fit. Do you have any more info about Fanny or her parents?
Mods: Could someone move this to Requests for Genealogy Help?
Apologies .  I am very sorry for the trouble I have caused. I must have had a memory lapse, or something.

Thomas and Anne CORBETT . ....HAD ABOUT FIVE CHILDREN.  

FANNY  was the eldest.

Then came Charlotte, born in 1859, who married Robert Copeland  IN 1879

CANNOT TRACE FANNY AT ALL.

THERE IS A FANNY CORBETT BORN 1844 BUT THAT IS TOO EARLY FOR MY FAMILY

THERE WERE OTHER dAUGHTERS OF    Thomas and Anne.

 

I DO SINCERELY APOLOGIZE TO ALL. . I beg your forgiveness .

1422  Ethel Humphreys.

Cheers

Don't worry, you haven't caused any trouble. I think you're mistaken in saying Fanny was the eldest though as I found the family in the 1861 census:

Name   Household Role  Gender Age Birthplace
Thomas Corbet    Head      M  25  Lydbury North, Shropshire
Ann Corbet       Wife      F  27  Beguildy, Radnorshire
Charlotte Corbet Daughter  F  2   Hopesay, Shropshire
Fanny Corbet     Daughter  F  0   Wistanstow, Shropshire


The digitised image shows an age of 4 months for Fanny, putting her birth around November 1860. This is her birth record. Wistanstow is about five miles from Church Stretton.

First name(s)  FANNY
Last name      CORBETT
Birth year     1860
Birth quarter  4
Registration month     -
Mother's last name     -
District   CHURCH STRETTON
County     Shropshire
Country    England
Volume     6D
Page       494
Record set England & Wales births 1837-2006

Here's a link to the FreeBMD entry although it says Volume 6D is wrong and it should be 6A http://www.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/information.pl?cite=JyN4W2yvVtEZ6fvurikImA&scan=1
