Cornelius Cure was an English born sculptor of Dutch parentage; the son of the sculptor William Cure I. Cure lived and worked in Southwark. He held the office of Master Mason to both Queen Elizabeth I and King James I, originally jointly with his father. Cure was a popular sculptor of church monuments.
