Son of Charles Lewis Cornish who was curate at Littlemore at the time of Cardinal Newman. His brother was Stephen Cornish who became Headmaster of Walton Lodge School, Somerset in 1870. His cousing was Sir John Mowbray, (,_1st_Baronet). I have other pictures of him as he is my great-great Uncle, and other archives passed down to me from my family. I also have a picture of his grandfather.
