Moses Cornwall

Moses Cornwall (1841-1906) was the electoral returning officer in Kimberley who in 1897 had Cronwright-Schreiner’s name removed from the electoral roll. When in a letter to the Diamond Fields Advertiser Cronwright-Schreiner implied that Cornwall had been employed to deliberately disenfranchise him because of his well-known hostility to Rhodes, Cornwall sued for libel. Cornwall became major of Kimberley in December 1897 for the third time.
