Cornie History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Cornie family

The surname Cornie was first found in Cumberland at Corney, a parish, in the union of Bootle, Allerdale ward above Derwent.

"The surface is boldly varied, and the scenery in many parts strikingly picturesque; the higher grounds command diversified prospects, and from Corney Hall is an exceedingly fine view of the sea and numerous interesting objects. On the lands of the Hall are several veins of iron-ore of very rich quality, but of limited depth, which were wrought to some extent about 80 years since." [1]

The first records of the family were found in this area. Robert Cornay held estates at Low Hall, Yorkshire in 1301. [2] The Lay Subsidy Rolls of 1332 listed Robert de Cornay, Lancashire; and Roger de Cornay, Lancashire. [3]
