Cornish ~ Third Generation

    Issue of Alexander Cornish and Phillip Payne  
1.   Phillip Cornish
Bap 24 Nov 1633 at Poughill, Cornwall (ref IGI and findmypast).
Married Elizabeth, surname unknown. Marriage is not found in Cornish records. She was born c1644 at Poughill (ref LDS member in IGI).
Other Ancestry Public Trees have her born 1640.
Phillip is listed as Blacksmith in burial of daughter Elizabeth in 1663 and burial of wife Elizabeth.
Elizabeth buried 25 Feb 1687/88, wife of Phillipp Cornish, Blacksmith (ref parish record on Family Search Record Collection for Poughill, page 106).

There is also another marriage in findmypast & Phillimores in Cornwall OPC of a Phillipp Cornish on 17 Feb 1689/90 at Poughill to Philippa WEB, there is a burial 4 Jul 1706 at Poughill of Phillipe wife of Phillip Cornish (page 110); in Cornwall OPC Philipp is listed as a blacksmith so it is a very strong assumption that this was a second marriage of Phillip Cornish.

Burial of Phillip Cornish, Blacksmith, 5 Feb 1708/09 at Poughill (ref findmypast & parish record on Family Search Record Collection for Poughill, page 110).

Note that it is reported on the internet that the Cornishes were a long standing Cornwall family who had a descent from John Chammond of Launcells and were still using the name Chammond as a Christian name, part of a request in the last John Chammond's Will. (ref Yeo Society).

The following is Chamond's Will:

Gideon Cornish & Susanna Weeks both of this parish were marryed November 29 1679 (ref parish record on Family Search Record Collection for Poughill, page 79).
There is some doubt about whether this is 29 or 20 as the Phillimore Transcript in Cornwall OPC gives 20; a further check of the parish record may clarify this.
She was born c1657 (ref B.Chapple).

OTHER UNIDENTIFIED RECORDS

Marriage 13 Oct 1662 at Poughill of Alice Priscilla (?) CORNISH to Thomas STEPHENS of Stratton (ref Phillimores in Cornwall OPC)
Marriage 20 Nov 1673 at Poughill of Priscilla CORNISH of Stratton to John TREMBLES of Stratton (ref Phillimores in Cornwall OPC).
Marriage 10 May 1679 at Stratton of Katherine CORNISH to John ORCHARD (ref BT in Cornwall OPC).

Marriage 5 Feb 1679/80 at Poughill of Thomas CORNISH to Honour RUNDLE, both of the parish (ref findmypast, parish record and Phillimores in Cornwall OPC).
I have been unable to find Thomas' baptism in this parish or anywhere else in Cornwall.
They subsequently had children at Poughill: Elizabeth (bap 2 Aug 1682, buried 9 Aug 1682), Mary (bap 19 Oct 1683), Thomas (bap 28 Dec 1687),
Sampson (bap 18 Jan 1690/91), Margaret (bap May 1694; she was probably the one who married 16 May 1731 at Poughill to Richard Tremble),
William (bap 31 Jan 1696/97), Honor (bap 10 Aug 1701; she married 14 Apr 1728 at Kilkmampton to James Yeo).
No doubt they had many descendants of the name of Cornish in the same area.

There is an obscure burial at Poughill in Mar 1730/31 of "Honl:" (ref findmypast "Honor" and parish record on Family Search Record Collection for Poughill, page 113).
This is listed as Honor Cornish, widow in Cornwall OPC.
There is also a burial in Poughill on 9 Nov 1748 of "Honl" (ref findmypast "Honor" and parish record on Family Search Record Collection for Poughill, page 115).
