Bernard would probably be a descendant of 1709er Protestant Palatine,
Adam Cornelius, who was living on the Southwell Estate at Rathkeale in
1720. The family name is found under various spellings: CORNEILLE,
Corneal, Cornelly, Cornell, Cornaell, etc.

They married into other Palatine families: Benner, Ruttle, Shoudlice,
Dolmage, Dope, Sparling, Shier, Cronesberry.

A couple pages are devoted to this family in H.Z. Jones' "The Palatine
Families of Ireland;" and there are various references to them in
Patrick O'Connor's "People Make Places." Unfortunately, the Corneille
family history has not been as well documented as many of the other
Palatine families.
