Cornell Genealogy & History

Cornell may come from the medieval Latin cornelius, meaning horn. It may also come from the French corneille indicating a crow hence a loud person. One other source is from a locational name corne halh, meaning valley or meadow. Cornell family history has the ancestral seat in Devon from long before the Norman Conquest in 1066. In 1148 we find the first recording of the name as Herbert Corneilla, in the charters of Hampshire, England. Noteworthy Cornell genealogy members are Rhode Island Continental Congress delegate Ezekiel Cornell, businessman and co-founder of Cornell University Ezra Cornell, and priest and two-term Wisconsin Representative Robert John Cornell.
