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.

Early records

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.
