Notes

This family construction is based on the 1975 research of Prentiss Glazier[3]

   George Cornwell m1 Joan _____. Children:
       William Cornwell, chr Fairsted 4 Oct 1562; m at Terling 26 Sep 1592 Margary Hayward;
            ?? Thomas Cornwell, bapt 15 Jun 1595 Saffron Weldon [4]
           William Cornwell Jr, youngest of six children christened at Terling, bapt 25 May 1609 and "clearly the ancestor of the Connecticut family." 
   m2 at Terling 26 -- 1574 Margaret Dagnet
   m3 Terling 23 Apr 1593 Susan Casse
       Thomas baptized 24 March 1594 Fairstead, Manor, Essex, England; m Rebecca (Briggs?)
           Children incuding their youngest son Joshua, "a name which appears nowhere else among the early Cornells or Cornwells." 
       Joshua bapt 1 Jun 1595 Fairstead 

Why Glazier believes George of the 1593 marriage to Casse was also the one who was christening two children in the 1560s (including William Cornwell chr Faistred 4 Oct 1562 is not explained by Glazier. Seems like the George who married in 1593 was just as likely to be brother to William who was born 1562.
