Previous post

Folliott Herbert Walker Cornewall (bapt. 9 May 1754 – 5 September 1831) was an English bishop of three sees.


Cornewall was the second surviving son of Frederick Cornewall of Delbury, Shropshire (1706–1788), captain in the Royal Navy, by Mary, daughter of Francis Herbert of Ludlow, first cousin of Henry Herbert, 1st Earl of Powis. Charles Cornewall was his granduncle. His elder brother Frederick (1752–1783) was M.P. for Ludlow in 1780. He was educated for the church, in which, having studied at Eton College and graduated B.A. at St. John's College, Cambridge, in 1777, he took orders.[1]

He proceeded M.A. in 1780, and the same year, through the interest of his second cousin, Charles Wolfran Cornwall, Speaker of the House of Commons, he obtained the post of Speaker's Chaplain. He was preferred to a canonry at Windsor in 1784 and appointed master of Wigston's Hospital, Leicester, in 1790, dean of Canterbury in 1792, bishop of Bristol in 1797. He exchanged this see to become bishop of Hereford in 1803, and in 1808 he was translated to be bishop of Worcester.

In 1817 he served as treasurer of the Salop Infirmary in Shrewsbury.[2]

He died in 1831 at Hartlebury, and was buried in the family vault at Diddlebury, Shropshire. Cornewall married Anne, eldest daughter of George Hamilton, canon of Windsor, by whom he had issue two sons and one daughter. He published A Sermon preached before the House of Commons on 30 Jan. 1782, and also A Fast Sermon preached before the House of Lords in 1798.
