PREFACE. 

In the following pages is given the history of an average New 
England family. It begins with a middle class Englishman, a 
Puritan, who came to New England in the first half of the 
seventeenth century. His descendants, like the descendants of 
most of the other Puritan settlers of New England, remained 
in New England for five or six generations, rapidly multiplying, 
and then, at the close of the eighteenth century, began to swarm 
westward. At the present time only a small portion of his 
descendants are found in New England. The great majority 
of them are scattered over the northern half of the United States 
between the Hudson River and the Pacific Ocean, and are par- 
ticularly numerous in the states of New York, Michigan and 
Iowa. The history of this New England family in regard to its 
geographical distribution is an epitome of the history of the 
whole New England people, who, almost exclusively by the 
natural increase of a small number of early comers, grew in a 
century and a half sufficiently numerous to fill their bleak corner 
of territory, and then, after the Revolution, still rapidly increas- 
ing, swarmed westward in a continuous stream, transforming 
the western wilderness into states of a greater New England, 
and stamping the Yankee name and character on the whole 
United States. 

The account here given of the emigrant, William Cornwall, 
and the first five or six generations of his descendants is founded 
on an extensive examination of early New England records of 
various sorts, colony, town, church, probate, etc. The account 
of the more recent generations is chiefly derived from data 
supplied by correspondents or taken from printed books. No 
doubt some errors will be found in this work, and for errors 
that may be found in the account of the early generations the 
compiler pleads in excuse, that circumstances often compelled 
him to make very hurriedly the examination of the original 
records on which that account is founded. For errors found in 
the history of the later generations he may be not altogether

to blame. And it is not at all his fault that the accounts of 
some of the recent branches of the family are comparatively 
meager. 

The attempt has been made to include in this book an account 
of every one of the descendants of William Cornwall born to 
his surname, and though it has not been successful, the number 
of those not included is comparatively small. 

In nearly all cases the marriages of female members of the 
family are given, and in a majority of cases an account of their 
descendants is given for one or more generations. 

In the arrangement of the genealogy, simplicity and conven- 
ience have been aimed at. After the account of William Corn- 
wall, his descendants are described in regular order to the fifth 
generation ; but the descendants of each one of the fifth genera- 
tion are given in a bunch, so that those nearly related will find 
themselves grouped together in the book. 

Each descendant of William Cornwall of his surname has 
a regular number. When he appears as the head of a family 
this number is inclosed in curves. The plus sign after an indi- 
vidual's name indicates that he will appear farther on as the 
head of a family. Descendants through females are described 
immediately after the first mention of their names. The 
children of each of the females are numbered, i, 2, 3, etc., her 
grandchildren, (i), (2), (3), etc., her great-grandchildren, i, 
ii, iii, etc., and her great-great-grandchildren, i, ii, Hi, etc. The 
abbreviations employed are those in common use. 

The book is a history of the family as well as a genealogy. 
Trivialities, except in the case of the earlier generations, where 
they are interesting on account of their antiquity, have been to 
a large extent excluded, but such facts as military services, 
political honors, academic degrees, particular business success, 
and other facts of general interest, have been noted as fully as 
possible. A special attempt has been made to give an account 
of the services of the twenty-two members of the family who 
served in the Revolution; and the two Tories of the family 
have not been overlooked. The only titles mentioned are pro- 
fessional titles, academic titles, and titles which indicate com- 
missions in the army, navy or militia. 

In an appendix is given brief accounts of other emigrants of 
the name of Cornwall who came to America during Colonial

times; also a few notes on early English families of the name, 
and some facts about the spelling of the name. 

The form Cormvall has been used uniformly in this book for 
the spelling of the name, though many of the descendants of 
William Cornwall still spell it Cornzvell. In how many other 
different ways they spelled it formerly may be seen in the appen- 
dix. The reasons for using the form Cornwall uniformly in 
this book are first, because the majority of William's descend- 
ants at the present time so spell it, and second, because the spell- 
ing of this surname should follow the spelling of the name of 
the English county from which it is derived, which is now fixed 
as Cormvall. 

It is a cause of regret to the writer that in this account of the 
family of William Cornwall he has not been able to include 
some notice of every one of his descendants of the name. He 
hopes that those few who are not here included, as they discover 
themselves, will communicate with him, so that he may include 
them in a second edition, if that should ever be called for. Any 
corrections, also, will be gladly received. 

There are many persons to whom the writer is greatly 
indebted for assistance in this compilation. He wishes to 
acknowledge particular indebtedness to Mrs. Jane M. Taft of 
Burlington, Vt., to the late Mr. Horace Cornwall of Hartford, 
Conn., and to his grandfather, Mr. David Cornwall, late of 
Portland, Conn.

WILLIAM CORNWALL AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 



WILLIAM CORNWALL. 

An interesting tradition has been handed down concerning 
William Cornwall. A tolerably circumstantial version of this 
tradition was put into writing by the grandfather of the com- 
piler of this book, Mr. David Cornwall (born 1790, died 1874), 
who began to collect materials for a Cornwall genealogy in 1824. 
He did not proceed very far with the undertaking, and most of 
his papers relating to it have been lost, but fortunately his 
version of the Family Tradition was preserved. 

According to this version of the tradition, William Cornwall 
came from England to New England in the reign of Charles I ; 
he was accompanied by two brothers, one of whom went to 
Long Island and afterwards returned to England to recover an 
estate which had been confiscated ; this brother, or William him- 
self, had been an officer in King Charles's body-guard ; William 
was a Cavalier and not a Puritan ; he received a grant of land 
in Connecticut for services in fighting the Indians. 

Other versions of this tradition give the number of brothers 
who accompanied William Cornwall to America as one, two, 
and three; and one version says he had a brother in England 
who was an earl. All versions agree that one brother came 
with him who went to Long Island ; and in at least two branches 
of the family the tradition of his connection with the King's 
body-guard has been preserved. 

Notwithstanding the circumstantiality of this tradition and 
the persistency with which its main points have been held in 
different branches of the family, it would not deserve serious 
consideration if it did not have some documentary support. 
Fortunately, documentary evidence in support of its principal 
assertions has been found, and this makes its other assertions 
less improbable. 

The statement made in one version of the tradition, that 
William Cornwall had a brother in England who was an earl, 



2 WILLIAM CORNWALL AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 

is not true. There was no earl of the name of Cornwall in 
England at that time, and the only contemporary nobleman of 
the name was not his brother. But it is possible that his family 
may have belonged to the lesser gentry, to which class many of 
the Puritan settlers of New England belonged ; and if his family 
owned an estate in England during the troubled times between 
1620 and 1660 its confiscation would not have been an unusual 
event. There is nothing in his character or career, as shown by 
the New England records, which is inconsistent with such an 
origin. 

The statement that he was a Cavalier and not a Puritan seems 
incorrect in face of the fact that the first notice which we have 
of him in America is the record of his membership in a Puritan 
church. But he may have been a recent convert to Puritanism, 
and have come to New England in consequence of his conver- 
sion ; and his family in England may have been Cavaliers, and 
have suffered in consequence during Cromwell's ascendancy. 
If we accept the tradition about the "King's body-guard," it is 
not difificult to understand that his conversion to Puritanism 
might have lost him his position in the King's household. 

Of the brother who went to Long Island we have what seems 
to be good documentary evidence. Shortly after the first 
appearance of William Cornwall in Hartford, Connecticut, we 
find the record of a Thomas Cornwall there. There is only 
one record of this Thomas Cornwall in Connecticut, but two 
years later, in the records of the Reformed Dutch Church in 
New Amsterdam, we find an account of the marriage of 
"Thomas Cornelis, of Hertfordshire, England." This Thomas 
Cornwall joined the English settlement at Gravesend, Long 
Island, and died there in 1650. He did not return to England 
to claim a confiscated estate, — that statement may have been 
a distorted allusion to some fact or an ornamental frill added to 
the tradition, — but he certainly failed to return to Connecticut, 
which one version of the tradition says was the case. An 
account of this Thomas Cornwall is given in the Appendix, and 
also an account of another contemporary Thomas Cornwall, 
who may have been related to William. 

The traditionary statement that William Cornwall was an 
"officer in the King's body-guard" seems to be confirmed by the 
early records of Hartford, Connecticut. This subject will be 
discussed in another place. 



WILLIAM CORNWALL. 3 

The statement that he received a grant of land in Connecticut 
for military services in the Indian wars is also supported by- 
documentary evidence and will be alluded to again. 

Taking this tradition for what it is worth, we learn from it 
that William Cornwall was born in England, near the beginning 
of the seventeenth century, of respectable parents of the middle 
class ; that he probably served for a time as one of the little corps 
of sixteen sergeants-at-arms who were in attendance on Charles 
I ; that he became a Puritan, and emigrated to New England in 
company with one brother who went to Long Island. 

In what part of England William Cornwall was born we can 
only conjecture, but the fact that many of the early settlers of 
Hartford, Conn., with whom he joined himself at an early date, 
were from Hertfordshire, and the fact that his probable brother, 
Thomas Cornwall, who married in New York in 1642, was from 
Hertfordshire, both point to that English county as the place of 
his origin. 

Leaving tradition, we will now follow William Cornwall's 
history as it is given in the New England records. The first 
record which we have of him is found in the Reverend John 
Eliot's list of the members of his church in Roxbury, Massa- 
chusetts, which includes the names of 

" William Cornewell, 

" Joane Cornewell, the wife of Willia Cornewell." 

The date 1633 is given just before and just after the entry of 
these names. 

No further record of him is found in Roxbury, but we have 
evidence that in May, 1637, he was one of the seventy-seven 
soldiers, all but nineteen of whom were from Hartford and the 
other Connecticut River towns, who attacked and all but exter- 
minated the Pequot Indians in their fort at Mystic. Whether 
he was in Hartford before this campaign, or came from Massa- 
chusetts with Captain John Underbill, and was one of the 
nineteen soldiers of Captain Underbill's company who joined 
the little Connecticut force under Captain Mason at Saybrook, 
is an open question. It is certain that he was settled in Hart- 
ford very soon after the Pequot expedition. 

In 1638, the next year after the Pequot fight, he accompanied 
Mr. Hopkins and Mr. Goodwin in an expedition sent by the 



4 WILLIAM CORNWALL AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 

Colony of Connecticut to consummate the purchase of Stratford 
from the Indians. Many years later, in 1659, the Reverend 
John Higginson, who acted as interpreter for this expedition, 
gave testimony concerning it which he ends as follows: "And 
I suppose if Mr. Goodwin is asked he can say the same thing 
for substance as I do, and William Cornwell at Sebrook, who 
was there." Mr. Higginson, in 1659, evidently thought that 
William Cornwall was living in Saybrook ; he was, in fact, living 
in Middletown at that time. 

In 1639, when the land records of Hartford begin, William 
Cornwall had a house lot of eight acres in the village, "no. 54, 
west of South Street, south from the Lane," which corresponds 
to a location near the north end of the present Village Street. 
One half of his house lot lay in the "Souldier's Field," a choice 
tract which was divided among the veterans of the Pequot War. 
His possession at this early date of a share of the "Souldier's 
Field" confirms the family tradition that he received a grant of 
land for military services against the Indians. The total 
amount of land recorded to him in Hartford in 1639 was about 
sixteen acres. 

Though an early settler in Hartford, he was not one of the 
original proprietors of the town. We find his name third in a 
list of forty-two householders who, in 1640, held their rights of 
pasturage on the Common and of drawing wood and water "by 
the courtise of the town." 

In the earliest record of his land in Hartford, which is dated 
Feb., 1639, he is styled "Williani Cornwell, Sergeant-at-Arms." 
In view of the statement in the Family Tradition that William 
Cornwall had been "an officer in the King's body-guard," and 
because of the difficulty of accounting for the presence in this 
early Hartford record of the unusual title, Sergeant-at-Arms, in 
any other way than by taking it as a reference to his position in 
England, it is not unreasonable to suppose that William Corn- 
wall had been in England one of the sixteen sergeants-at-arms, 
who, in the time of Charles I, were devoted to the special service 
of the King, while four more were attendant on the Houses of 
Parliament and the Lord Chancellor. It is easy to believe that 
the Hartford recorder put this title after William Cornwall's 
name because he had known him in England and the position 
which he held there. It is also significant that in this first 



WILLIAM CORNWALL. 5 

record in Hartford of the name Cornwall it is spelled with the 
w, while in the earliest known autograph of William Cornwall 
(1648), as well as in his signature to his will, the w is omitted. 
Had not the recorder been sufficiently acquainted with William 
Cornwall's family in England to know how the name should be 
spelled, he would probably have entered it, as it appears in so 
many other early records, in the corrupted form Cornell. (See 
The Spelling of the Name in the Appendix.) 

It was probably about 1639 that William Cornwall married 
his second wife, Mary, who, it is highly probable, was the 
mother of all his children who are mentioned in his will ; she 
certainly was the mother of his daughter Sarah. Of his first 
wife, Joane, no record has been found other than the mention of 
her name in the list of the members of the Roxbury church. 

He removed before March 5, 1648, from the village of Hart- 
ford to the east side of the Connecticut River at Hocanum. On 
that date he bound out his second son, William, who was seven 
years old, to Susannah Hooker of Hartford, widow of the 
Reverend Thomas Hooker, with provision for his education. 
The original indenture in the handwriting of Governor Edward 
Hopkins is still in existence. 

Sept. 6, 1649, "^t ^ perticular Court in Hartford," he was sued 
and judgment was rendered against him : "Thos. Osmore, pit. 
contra William Cornewell, defendt. in an action of the case, to 
the damage of 4/." 

In 1650 or 165 1 he removed with the first settlers to Middle- 
town, fifteen miles below Hartford on the Connecticut River. 
There his house lot of five acres, with ten acres on the opposite 
side of the street, was in the center of the village, "Lower 
Houses," "near ye landing place, by ye spring," at the southwest 
corner of the junction formed by the highway leading up from 
the river and the highway running north and south, which 
corresponds to the corner of the present Main and Washington 
Streets. 

His lands in Middletown were first formally recorded Feb. 30, 
1657, though a grant to him is alluded to as early as March 15, 
1652, about which time the land records begin. The total 
amount recorded to him is nine hundred and three acres. 
Besides this amount he had a "great lot over the Great River" 
and an original proprietor's share in the undivided lands of the 



6 WILLIAM CORNWALL AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 

township. His descendants received this share whenever a new 
division was made. In a deed dated 1775 allusion is made to 
land "which was laid out in the right of old Ser^-eant Cormvell." 

He was representative from Middletown in the Colonial Leg- 
islature in 1654, 1664 and 1665. He was constable in 1664. 

In 1666 he received a grant of land in East Hartford of 
twenty-four acres in a general division. This may have been 
given to him as a veteran of the Pequot War, but it is more 
likely that he received it as a citizen of Hartford, his rights in 
which he may have retained. The grant of land referred to in 
the family tradition was no doubt his four acres in the 
"Souldier's Field." 

In 1667 the General Court at Hartford "freed William Corn- 
well's head from the paying of rates." 

"3d of loth, 1668, Sergeant Cornwell" joined the recently 
organized church in Middletown. 

In 1670 he was assessed in Middletown on £160, which was 
the fifth largest assessment in the list of fifty-tv^^o householders. 
In the same list his son John was rated at £40, and his sons 
William and Samuel at £45 each. In 1673 he was rated at £231. 

April 7, 1674, he made his will, which he signed with a very 
feeble hand. In it he speaks of himself as "well stricken in 
years and much abated in any natural strength." 

Nov. 4, 1676, he deeded land on the east side of the Connecti- 
cut River to his sons William and Samuel. This deed was wit- 
nessed by his son John Cornwell and his son-in-law John Hall, 
Jr., "by the assignment of their father Sergeant William Corn- 
well, he not being able to sign it," which shows that the "abate- 
ment of his natural strength" alluded to in his will two years 
before had progressed. 

He died in Middletown, Feb. 21, 1678, and was probably 
buried in the. old cemetery by the Connecticut River, though 
there are no tombstones standing there of so early a date. 

His will and inventory are on file in the Hartford Probate 
office. 

"Last will and testament of Sergeant William Cornwell of Middletown. 

"Whereas I, William Cornwell, Sr., of Middletown, being well stricken 
in years and much abated in my natural strength (though, through 
mercy, in as perfect use of my understanding and memory as ordinarily 
men are of my years), expecting my change to be very near, as duty

binds me to prevent all future trouble in consequence to my children and 
to others, I do leave this as my last will and testament covering that 
portion of my outward estate which God hath given me as followeth : 

"Imprimis : I give to my son John Cornwell so much addition to his 
present house lott out of my house lott as may make up his present house 
lott the full half of the whole, the sayd addition to be taken out next to 
the dividing line betwixt us. I also give to my said son John the one 
half of that wood land in the south division of the land beyond the Mill 
lying below the land of my son William and William Lucas, the other 
half of said land to my dauter Sarah Cornwell, this land to be equally 
divided between them. Moreover I give to my son John two acres of the 
meadow and swamp at the Riverlet at the eastern end of the meadow 
and swamp to begin next the Riverlet at the end next the boggy meadow 
and so to carry a straight line north and south through the said meadow 
and swamp as it divides the line between the aforesaid two acres and 
the remaining of my meadow at the Riverlet. 

"I give to my son William Cornwell ten acres of my land upon the 
Indian Hill at the east end, the whole breadth of the lot, moreover I give 
to my said son one third part of my land yet to be divided by the list of 
1674 on the east side of the river, the other two thirds of the aforesaid 
land to my sons Samuel and Thomas equally to be divided between them. 
I give moreover to my son Samuel one hundred acres of my wood lot 
at the Long Hill, the remainder to go to my son Jacob. I give moreover 
to my son Thomas what is aforesayd the remainder of my lott at the 
Indian Hill, the ten acres as above mentioned being taken out of it. 

"I give to my dauter Hester Willcox my whole lot on the east side of 
the River lying against Goodman Coales swamp at the upper end of the 
rocks west in the pond 

"I give to my dauter Elizabeth Hall one parsell of upland lying in the 
Boggy meadow quartered between the bounds of Deacon Hall and my 
son Samuel Cornwell. 

"I give my loving wife Mary Cornwell my household, all the buildings, 
household stuff and moveables whatsoever with the remainder of my 
meadow at the Riverlet qtiietly and peacefully to enjoy the same with all 
the benefits thereof during the term of her widdowhood, and also the 
whole stock of cattle during the said term. It is also my meaning here 
and will that while my dauter Sarah continues in single state, living with 
and being a comfort to her mother, she should have her maintenance out 
of the same so far as her mother's comfort will allow. After my wife 
her decease I will the above mentioned house, household and meadow 
land at the Riverlett, remaining to my son Jacob Cornwell, he to pay 
all just debts and the charges of my decent funeral out of the same, and 
also to his sister Sarah Cornwell one third part of the valuation of the 
forementioned housing and land as shall be offered and invited in current 
pay of the country within twelve months after his possession of the same. 
In case my wife in the term above mentioned see cause to change her 
condition by marriage it is then my will that my loving wife should 
leave all the household stuff whatsoever to Jacob, he to allow her four

country in case she find need and demand of him, and that at her decease 
my three daughters shall have the household stuffs equally divided 
among them, only my son Samuel to have (upon a former promise) one 
of the feather beds first taken out and delivered to him, and the long 
table, joynt stools and bedstead in the new room to be left to Jacob

In 1713, "aged about 16," he chose Joseph Rockwell, of 
Middletown, for his guardian. His estate was divided 
among Silence Boardman, Sarah Burton, John Penfield, 
and the heirs of Jonathan Cornwall, but he may have had 
children, for in 1730 Capt. Giles HaJl was appointed guard- 
ian to "two children of David Cornwell." These children 
were living in 1737. Perhaps this name David should be 
Steven.

156 APPENDIX. 

II. 

THOMAS CORNWALL OF GRAVESEND, L. I. 

The brother who, according to family tradition, came to New 
England with William Cornwall, and soon after went to Long 
Island, was probably Thomas Cornwall of Gravesend, L. I. 

Hinman, in his "Puritan Settlers of Connecticut," says that 
Thomas Cornwall came from Hertfordshire, England, with 
the Rev. Thomas Hooker, to Massachusetts, September 4, 1633, 
and went with him to Hartford, Conn. He gives no authority 
for this statement. 

But in the early records of Hartford, of the New Netherlands 
and of Gravesend, L. I., are found references to a Thomas 
Cornwall, who may well have been and probably was the 
Thomas Cornwall to whom Hinman refers and of whom the 
tradition in William Cornwall's family makes mention. 

The Connecticut Colony records state that in Hartford, 
August I, 1639, "Thomas Cornewell" was fined thirty shillings 
for "unseasonable and immoderate drinking at the Pinnace." 
This is the only record of him found in Connecticut. 

In the records of the Dutch Reformed Church in New 
Amsterdam we find the following (translated) : 

"November 2, 1642, Thomas Cornelis, young man, of the 
county of Hertford, and Elizabeth Fiscock, young maiden, of 
Plymouth, in England," were married. 

We also find in the records of this church account of the 
baptism of the children of Thomas Cornwall : 

Elizabeth, bapt. Jan. 12, 1644 ; sponsors Edward Fiscock and Maria 

du Trieux. 
Sarah, bapt. Jan. 21, 1646; sponsor Sarah Cornelis. 
Joliannah, bapt. August 14, 1650 ; sponsors John and Jane Haes. 
Marah, bapt. August 14, 1650; sponsors Johannes and Susannah 

Breen. (The last two baptisms were in New Utrecht.) 

In these baptismal records his name is spelled Corenwell, 
Carrnwell and Carmuwell. 

In 1644 he was a soldier in the employ of the Dutch Govern- 
ment, perhaps under command of Captain John Underbill, who 
had been Captain Mason's lieutenant in the Connecticut expe- 



THOMAS CORNWALL OF GRAVESEND, L. I. 157 

dition ag^ainst the Pequot Indians in 1637, and who shortly after 
that date transferred his allegiance to the Dutch Government 
at New Amsterdam, to which he rendered, in 1645, very 
important services. The Dutch Colonial records under date of 
July 7, 1644, tell how Steven Stevenson and Thomas Mabbs 
tried to kill "Thomas Cornil" in Flatlands, Long Island ; and 
under date of November 2.2, 1644, they inform us that "Wil- 
liam Woodheyt, a soldier from Yorkshire, and Thomas Cornel, 
a soldier from Hertfordshire," were found guilty of desertion. 

Before Sept. 12, 1645, he joined the English settlers who 
had gathered with Lady Henry Moody at Gravesend, Long 
Island. The Gravesend town records tell us that on that date 
"Thomas Cornwell" accused Ambrose London of stealing one 
of his hens. London was compelled by the authorities to 
restore the hen, and in revenge he publicly stated that Thomas 
Cornwell was "a thief and a rogue," whereupon Thomas 
Cornwell sued him for slander. Oct. 28, 1648, he bought a 
cow and heifer of Henry Brasier. Nov. 22, 1648, he leased 
all of Lady Moody's "broken land," except one piece, with 
four yoke of oxen and four cows, for 60 guilders and 10 skipples 
of wheat per annum. March 21, 1650, he bought a yoke of 
oxen of J. Hathaway. May 5, 1650, he had a dispute with 
Lady Moody about the conditions of his lease. 

Sept. 9, 1650, his widow, Elizabeth, married John Morrice 
in Gravesend. The record of this marriage is preceded by the 
statement that "Thomas Cornwell died and was buried." 

Jan. 9, 1651, the estate of Thomas Cornwell of Gravesend was 
settled by the court. He was found to have left a widow, 
Elizabeth, who was married to John Morrice, and four small 
children, viz. : Elizabeth, aged about seven years ; Sarah, 
aged about four years, Johanna, aged about three years, and 
Marah, aged about one and a half years. His estate, which 
amounted to about 600 guilders, was given to John Morrice 
on his agreement to maintain the four daughters of Thomas 
Cornwall and to pay to each of them 100 guilders on the day 
of her marriage.

III. 

THOMAS CORNWALL OF RHODE ISLAND.* 

Whether or not this Thomas Cornwall was a relative of 
William Cornwall of Middletown we have no means of posi- 
tively ascertaining. Their arrival at about the same time in 
Boston, the similarity in the names of their children and the 
probable fact that they came from adjoining counties in Eng- 
land suggest a relationship ; and the fact that this Thomas 
Cornwall went to the New Netherlands the year after the other 
Thomas, the probable brother of William, was married there, 
may also have a bearing on the relationship. 

The earliest account which we have of this Thomas Cornwall 
in America is found in the town records of Boston, Mass., 
under date of August 20, 1638: 

"At a meeting this day there is license granted to Mr. Thomas 
Cornnell for the buying of our brother Wilyam Balstone's house 
and to become an inhabitant of this town." 

He was allowed to keep a tavern in this house "on trial," 
but in the next year, June 6, 1639, he was fined £30 for "selling 
wine without a license and beer at 2d. per quart" ; but he was 
"abated iio of the fine, and allowed a month to sell of his 
beare wch is upon his hands, and then to cease from keeping 
intertainment, and the town to provide another." 

In 1640 "Mr. Cornewell" sold the house in Boston, which 
he had bought of William Balstone, to Edward Tynge, and 
removed to Portsmouth, R. I. August 6, 1640, "Thomas 
Cornil" was made a freeman in Rhode Island. 

In 1643 hs went with Mr. Throckmorton's company to the 
New Netherlands, and settled at Throgg's Neck. This English 
company was said by John Winthrop to have "cast off churches 
and ordinances, and for larger accommodation subjected them- 
selves to the Dutch." While he was at Throgg's Neck the 
settlement was attacked by hostile Indians, who "killed such 

*To the Reverend John Cornell of Washington, D. C, who is com- 
piling a genealogical history of the family of Thomas Cornwall of Rhode 
Island, the present writer is greatly indebted for assistance in prepar- 
ing the brief account of the early generations of this family given in this 
article.

THOMAS CORNWALL OF RHODE ISLAND. I 59 

of Mr. Throckmorton's and Mr. Cornhill's families as were at 
home." In 1646 "Thomas Coornel" received a grant of 700 
acres of land in Westchester, N. Y., from the Dutch Govern- 
ment, which was afterwards occupied by some of his descend- 
ants. He soon after returned to Portsmouth, R. I., where he 
received a grant of 160 acres of land, Feb. 14, 1647. He died 
in Rhode Island in 1656. 

He was bom about 1595 in Essex, England. That Essex was 
his place of origin is an inference from the fact that in the 
record of his daughter Sarah's marriage in New Amsterdam in 
1646 she is called "of Essex in England." 

His wife was Rebecca Briggs, whom he married in England. 
She died in 1673. The verdict of the Coroner's jury was that 
she was sitting by an open fireplace smoking a pipe and fell 
asleep, and that while asleep a coal from her pipe or the fire- 
place set fire to her clothing, so that she was burned to death 
before she awoke, or awoke too late. Under this verdict she 
was buried, but her brother, John Briggs, shortly after she 
was buried, had a dream in which she appeared to him and 
exclaimed, "See how I was burned with fire!" This dream 
was interpreted to mean that she was set fire to, and as her 
son Thomas was the last person seen with her, it was argued 
that he it must have been who set fire to her. He was tried 
and, principally on the evidence of this dream, convicted of 
having murdered her and hung. He proclaimed his innocence 
to the last, and the first coroner's verdict seems to be the cor- 
rect one. At any rate, it is the testimony of all in recent times 
who have read the records of this strange trial which are still 
in existence, that no jury in these days would have found him 
guilty on the evidence; and Judge Durfee, in his Legal Tracts 
of Rhode Island, comments on the strangeness and injustice of 
the execution; and Austin, in his Genealogical Dictionary of 
Rhode Island, says that "the evidence in this case would seem 
to have been in its way conclusive." 

The children of Thomas Cornwall and Rebecca Briggs were :

IV. 

OTHER EARLY IMMIGRANTS OF THE NAME OF CORNWALL. 

Besides William Cornwall and the two Thomas Cornwalls 
already mentioned, records have been found of three others of 
the name who came to New England during Colonial times. 

Rev. William Cornwall, a Presbyterian clergyman, embarked 
for Massachusetts with the Scotch-Irish company which came 
from Londonderry in 1718. Of his descendants no trace has 
been found. 

In 1722 Captain James Cornwall of the British Navy was 
in Boston. He soon returned to England with his ship. 

About 1757 John Cornwall died in Danbury, Conn. He 
probably had an only son John, who was father of an only son. 
Captain John, who had sons, John, Francis and Nathan, who 
were young adults at the time of the Revolution. 

Outside of New England records of a few Colonial immigrant 
Cornwalls have been found. 

Nov. 20, 1635, William Cornwall, aged 20, embarked at 
Gravesend, England, for the Barbadoes, in the Expedition, 
Captain Blackler, Master. 

In 1683 John Cornwall received a grant of 500 acres of land 
in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. 

In 1 71 7 Francis Cornwall of Sussex County, Pennsylvania, 
set forth in a petition, that his "late father, Francis Cornwall," 
had been granted 100 acres in Pennsylvania. 

Captain John Cornwall of the British army fell in the storm- 
ing of Ticonderoga under Abercrombie in 1758. His son, 
William Cornwall, who was born in Dublin, Ireland, Oct. 19, 
1750, came to New York with his mother in 1765. This Wil- 
liam Cornwall married in Greenwich, Conn., Nov. 5, 1776, 
Hannah Finch, and settled soon after in Delaware County, New 
York. He served in the Revolution as ensign and lieutenant. 



THE SPELLING OF THE NAME. 163 

After the Revolution he moved to Genesee County, New York. 
He died in 1816, in Jerusalem, Yates County, New York. He 
had ten children. 

At least one of the name of Cornwall settled in Virginia some- 
time about the middle of the eighteenth century, a branch of 
whose family went to South Carolina or Georgia before the 
close of that century. 

George and Mary Cornwall of Orangeburgh, S. C, had sons, 
Peter and Billander, baptized in 1760. 

In 1772 four brothers, Benjamin, William, Abraham and 
Jesse Cornwall, came to Philadelphia from Scotland. Benjamin 
and William settled in Hampshire County, Va. Abraham and 
Jesse are said to have settled in New York and New Jersey. 

V. 

THE SPELLING OF THE NAME. 

The surname Cormvall is a place name taken from the South- 
westernmost county of England. It means the corn or pro- 
montory of Wales (Welch, Gaels). 

In Colonial records in this country, as well as in early English 
records, the name is spelled in a great variety of ways. This 
is the case with most other English names. It is only recently, 
that is, within about one hundred years, that the spelling of 
English names has become fixed. 

In the first record of William Cornwall's name found in 
America (1633) it is spelled Cornezvell. In his only two known 
autographs (1648 and 1674) it appears as Cornell. In Con- 
necticut records during the Colonial period we find the follow- 
ing variations : Cornezvell, Cornewel, Cormvall, Cormval, Cor- 
nelle, Cornell, Cornel, Corniel, Cornil, Comal, Cornwill, Corn- 
zvil. Of these different forms the two most frequently used 
were Cornzvell and Cornell. After the Revolution the form 
Cornell disappeared among the descendants of William Corn- 
wall, and at the present time the forms Cornzvall and Cornzvell 
about equally divide the usage of his descendants, though Corn- 
zvall seems to be supplanting Cornzvell. 

The name of Thomas Cornwall, reputed brother of William 
of Middletown, is spelled Cornezvell in the only record of it 



164 APPENDIX. 

found in Connecticut (1639). In the Dutch records of New 
York the name appears as Cornells, Coremvell, Corrnwell, Cor- 
muzvell, Cornel and Cornil. In the records of Gravesend, L. I., 
it is spelled Cornwell. 

The name of Thomas Cornwall of Rhode Island was spelled 
in Boston, Mass., before 1640, as follows : Cornewell, Cornnell, 
Connell, Cornel, Cornhil, Cornehill; and in Rhode Island and 
New York, during Colonial times, Cornwall, Cornwell, Cornell, 
Cornel, Cornhill, Cornhil, Cornil and Coornell. 

In early English records variations have been noticed in the 
spelling all the way from Cornewaylle to Kornal. 

VI. 

EARLY ENGLISH CORNWALLS. 

In England, as in America, Cornwall has never been a very 
common name, though it is found there as a surname for seven 
hundred years. Being the name of a county it was less likely 
to be assumed as a place surname than the names of towns 
and parishes, more immediate residences. In the case of some 
of the "original" Cornwalls the surname was derived from a 
nobleman who bore the name in his title. Such was the case 
with Richard de Cornwall, ancestor of many of the name in 
England, of whose family down to about 1600 a partial pedigree 
is here given. This Richard was undoubtedly ancestor of a 
family of Cornwalls (of Haverell, Essex), who lived in Essex 
contemporary with and antecedent to the emigration of William 
Cornzvall to New England ; and because there is reason to sup- 
pose that William Cornwall came from Hertfordshire, which 
county immediately adjoins Essex, and because it was in a region 
of Essex immediately adjoining Hertfordshire that most of the 
Essex Cornwalls contemporary with William lived, and because 
Thomas Cornwall of Rhode Island, who came to New England 
at about the same time as William, was almost certainly from 
Essex, — for these reasons attention has been first directed in 
searching for William Cornwall's English ancestry, to the early 
Cornwalls of Essex and to the ancestor of some or all of them,. 
Richard de Cornwall.

devote to the search for William Cornwall's English connection 
the time and labor necessary to carry it to a successful issue.
