Reginald de Cornhill

Reginald de Cornhill was king's justiciar, the High Sheriff of Kent from 1191 to 1198 and High Sheriff of Surrey from 1213 to 1215. In 1203 the prior and convent of Prittlewell Priory, in return for a quitclaim of a moiety of the advowson of the church of North Shoebury, granted to Reginald and his heirs the perpetual right to present one clerk to be a monk in their house.(From: 'Houses of Cluniac monks: Priory of Prittlewell', A History of the County of Essex: Volume 2 (1907), pp. 138-41.

Also, he was constable of Rochester Castle in 1215 on behalf of its then holder Stephen Langton, archbishop of Canterbury. He opened its gates to William d'Albini and his troops, whom the barons rebelling against king John had sent to the castle to hold it against the king. He held out against the king's 2 month siege.

Through his wife Maud he had a claim to the stewardship of St Augustine's Abbey, Canterbury, which he and his wife quitclaimed for 80 marks and 50 acres in land by fine in 1197.

His father, Gervase, had also been sheriff of Kent in 1170-74, as was his brother, Henry, in 1189-92.
