3.   John CORNISH
Bap of John Cornish 2 Aug 1687 at Poughill, Cornwall (ref IGI & findmypast).
Bap of John Cornish 25 Aug 1687 at Poughill, Cornwall (ref BTs in Cornwall OPC Database with name "Joh").
The C OPC gives the explanation that the date is obscured in the fold of the book, so 25 is more likely as having been copied from the original.

There are two John Cornishes of very similar ages in Poughill (1687 and 1690, see next generation). Based on their ages and the connection here with Kilkhampton, it is more likely that it is this John Cornish who married Grace Elliott; I have given the other John Cornish on the next generation the marriage in 1719 to Martha Martyn (bap 1695 at Poughill).

Marr 28 Dec 1712 at Kilkhampton of John Cornish to Grace ELLIOTT (ref Phillimores in Cornwall OPC).

John was mentioned in Chamond's Will dated 18 Mar 1712/13 as:
"To my brother Giddions sones:
Giddion, Samuel, John & Phillip 1 shilling a piece".

Possible burial of Grace 11 Sep 1725 at Kilkhampton, 'wife of John (Blacksmith)' (ref Cornwall OPC).

There are two probable burials for John at Poughill, one on 8 Aug 1741 and one on 24 Sep 1745 but no further information is given on the burials (ref Cornwall OPC Database for both and the parish record for the second in Family Search Record Collection for Poughill, page 115). There are no suitable burials in Kilkhampton.

4.   Phillipp CORNISH
Bap 24 Apr 1690 at Poughill, Cornwall, son of Gideon & Susannah (ref IGI & findmypast; Cornwall OPC Database does not have day).

Phillipp was mentioned in Chamond's Will dated 18 Mar 1712/13 as:

Bap of Daniel Cornish 15 Jun 1681 at Poughill, Cornwall, son of Daniel and Allice (ref BTs in Cornwall OPC Database). The other entry in C OPC has 16 Jun, and the forename obscured in fold of book.

Assumed to be the Daniel Cornish who married 3 Jan 1717 at Poughill to Elizabeth CORNISH (ref Cornwall OPC Database). Not known who this Elizabeth is but she was not the daughter of Thomas & Honour who was born and died in 1682. May have been an Elizabeth Cornish in next generation.
