Cornwell
« on: Sunday 30 August 15 16:04 BST (UK) »
I recently promised a newish Rootschatter details of my Cornwell family tree, but told him there would be a wait as I was just setting up a new computer on which I would be putting all my Family History.

Though that side of things is progressing (slowly but it is progressing) I have recently dropped my Netbook which I am currently using, onto my printer and have had to reset all the printer heads etc. More importantly somehow or other most of my emails became deleted so I am having problems putting things back together. If the person concerned would like to get in touch with me, or any other member to whom I have promised information, please do so either by reply, or by personal message.
Thanks, Redroger

Sorry to hear about your dilemma Redroger ........

Computers, email, internet all great when it works.
A big headache when it doesn't.

Hope all will be well soon.

 ;D

Redroger,

Echo Whiskeymac's sentiments. But 're-set printer heads' warrants respect ! I cannot recall if it was me you refer to but I do share an interest in any CORNWELL family originating in Cambridgeshire & the Isle of Ely so would be interested in details of your tree whenever ready.

I was another one with Cornwell links, Roger.

In my case it's through Sarah Cornwell, who married Ambrose Frost ...

Did the acknowledgement get posted? For no apparent reason my machine switched itself off. Looks when I got back as though it had switched itself into airplane mode, but I certainly didn't activate anything. Anyone else had this?  O/S W10 Anyway I will be back making further Cornwell postings. I understand there are events taking place in Newham to commemorate the centenary of Jack Cornwell's death at the Battle of Jutland.

There were a couple of photos in last night's Cambridge News of Harvey Cornwell playing for Cambridge United in case anyone is interested.

http://www.cambridge-news.co.uk/Cambridge-United-s-mini-museum-set-open-soon/story-28614128-detail/story.html

Click on 'View Gallery'.   Photo No. 2 - H.C. is sitting second from left - 1924/25.
Photo No. 3 says 'star forward Harvey Cornwell challenges Histon Institute Goalkeeper' 3 September 1932.

Presumably connected to Harvey Cornwell's furniture shop on Mill Road, Cambridge.

Selina,

Thanks for the link. I cannot vouch for ‘Harvey’ CORNWELL’s (my fourth cousin) considerable prowess as a footballer though local newspapers of the time regularly reported on his sporting exploits. What I can say is that after military service in WW1 he first found employment as a sawyer before setting himself up as a dealer by 1921. He was then living in Leek Street, off the Newmarket Road, but moved to East Road by June 1923 where he built a thriving business over the next ten years. By 1931 he was established as a furniture dealer on the Newmarket Road. I remember the shop there, opposite Coldhams Lane, remained for some time after I moved to Cambridge in 1979 and can also recall smaller premises up Mill Road. He died in September 1966.

I think that Harvey Cornwell is about 4th cousin to me also.
