    Issue of Samuel Cornish and Grace  
1.   Grace CORNISH
Bap 25 Jun 1709 at Poughill (ref Cornwall OPC Database; IGI & findmypast do not have the day).
However another source quotes the Poughill Parish Register as "Grace CORNISH of Samuel CORNISH of Kilkhampton and Grace 15 January 1709 os" [old system, i.e. 1709/10, today 1710] (ref Eric Marshman). This would appear to be more accurate but requires further checking, as there may be more than one version of the parish register.
Marr 22 May 1736 at Morwenstow, Cornwall to Lawrence ASHTON (ref Phillimores in Cornwall OPC, &FMP).
There is a death 1764 at Sutcombe Devon of Laurence Ashton, with Probate (ref Ancestry Extracted Probate records).
Lawrence born c1706, possibly in Welcombe Devon, buried 3 Feb 1764 at Bradworthy, Devon, a yeoman farmer (ref B.Chapple).
Grace is mentioned with her married surname in the Will of her father in 1765.
Grace died 11 May 1767 at Bradworthy, Devon, buried 13 May 1767 (ref B.Chapple).

    Children:

  4. Laurence ASHTON born c1743 in Devon

2.   Elizabeth CORNISH
Bap 27 Nov 1713 at Kilkhampton, Cornwall, dau of Samuel & Grace (ref Cornwall OPC & IGI & findmypast).
The Bishop's Transcripts has 17th Nov 1713.
Married 13 Jul 1738 at Poughill to William BOUNDY; her residence Kilkhampton (ref Phillimores in Cornwall OPC). William was bap 28 Dec 1713 at Kilkhampton, son of Richard and Dorcos Boundie (ref IGI).

William Boundy is mentioned in the Will of his father-in-law in 1765 so presumably Elizabeth had died by then.
William believed to have died 15 Jul 1792 (ref Ancestry Public Tree).
IGI records
    Child:  
  1. Rebecca BOUNDY bap 1738 at Kilkhampton
 
3.   Dorcas CORNISH (f)
Bap 27 May 1716 at Kilkhampton, Cornwall, dau of Samuell & Grace (Dorcas in Cornwall OPC, Dorcas in IGI & findmypast).
In the Bishop's Transcripts the spelling of Dorcos is indistinct.

(Possibly) Married 5 Dec 1746 at Kilkhampton (as Dorcas) to John ELLIOT (ref Cornwall OPC, IGI & findmypast). Phillimore in Cornwall OPC says John Elliot of Hartland.

(Definitely) Marr 5 Feb 1763 at Kilkhampton of Dorcas Cornish to John BURNARD (ref Cornwall OPC & IGI).

Dorcas is mentioned with her married surname of Burnard in the Will of her father in 1765.
IGI records
4.   Samuel CORNISH
Bap 21 Oct 1720 at Kilkhampton, Cornwall as Samuell, son of Sam. & Grace (ref Cornwall OPC & IGI & findmypast).
Buried 27 Aug 1759 at Kilkhampton (ref findmypast).
Ref Kilkhampton Bishop's Transcript: Buried 1759, Samuel Cornish the Younger, Husbandman, Aug 14th (different date from above). However, LDS tape 476219 (monumental inscriptions at Kilkhampton) has CORNISH, Grace, w of Samuel Cornish of Stibb. Burd. Jun 21, 1760 age 79; and also Samuel, s. of above Samuel and Grace, burd. August 27, 1759 age 39. It depends whether the Bishop's transcript or the monumental inscription or copy of it is more accurate. Another version in Cornwall OPC has 10 Aug 1759, so there is some confusion.
IGI records
5.   Daniel CORNISH
Born c1723. No baptism record found.
Marr (1) 17 Nov 1743 at Kilkhampton, Cornwall of Daniel Cornish, H[usbandman] to Anne CHUKE (ref Phillimores in Cornwall OPC).
At the baptism of Grace in 1746, Daniel's residence is Morwinstow (ref Cornwall OPC).
Marr (2) 25 Jun 1758 at Holsworthy, Devon of Daniel Cornish to Mary CLEAVE (ref FamilySearch M05113-1, identification of Daniel according to Sheila Yeo 2011).
Daniel is mentioned in the Will of his father in 1765.
However there is some doubt about his identification of Daniel, as he describes himself as a bachelor on the marriage certificate (ref fmp). This makes this part of the tree, and subsequent dependencies, rather uncertain.
 
    Children of Daniel and Anne:  
  1. Elizabeth CORNISH bap 1744 at Kilkhampton, Cornwall  
  2. Grace CORNISH bap 1746 at Poughill, Cornwall  
    Children of Daniel and Mary:

Married 18 Jul 1750 at Kilkhampton to Mary ADAMS (ref IGI & findmypast); he was a Labourer (ref Phillimore in Cornwall OPC). She was bap 4 Jun 1729 at Kilkhampton (ref IGI). She was daughter of John Adams and Elizabeth Bray (see Family Group Record in IGI for further information).
Phillip's occupation was Labourer, Husbandman, and Yeoman (ref Bishop's Transcript). The spelling varied between Philip and Phillip.

At the baptism of son Philip in 1759, Phillip was a husbandman (ref Cornwall OPC).
Philip is mentioned in the Will of his father in 1765.
There are 3 possible burials for Phillip at Kilkhampton (ref Cornwall OPC):

Probable burial of Mary 14 Apr 1797 at Kilkhampton (ref Cornwall OPC).
