Cornelius Genealogy & History

Cornelius is an English surname, ultimately from the Latin Cornelius, meaning horn, and carried through with the Old French corneille, with the same meaning. However, during the mingling of Old French with Old English and its transition into Middle English, corneille came to mean a crow, and thus may have been used for particularly chatty people. Cornelius family history starts with Herbert Corneilla, who was noted in the charters of Hampshire County in 1148. Some famous members of Cornelius genealogy are 1960s Pakistan Chief Justice Alvin Robert Cornelius, Soul Train creator Don Cornelius, and Oregon pioneer and politician Thomas Cornelius.
