Origins of surname
This is a Breton surname, found particularly in the western department of Finistere. It is a diminuitive of the Breton korn, via the modern corne = horn, and signified a person carrying horns.
Although the name has French origins, it appears from the Cornick spelling found in Jersey records that the family came to the island from the south-west of England.
