The History of Cornish IndependenceThe Cornish nationalism movement seeks greater autonomy for the region of Cornwall. Advocates of this movement believe that they are not a county of England, but a separate nation that has never been incorporated into the country of England. These people believe that Cornwall is a separate nation from England and are pushing to be recognized as one of the home nations of the UK.
During the first English Civil War, Sir Richard Grenville, 1st Baronet began a campaign for an independent Cornwall. He tried using "Cornish particularist sentiment" in order to pull together support for the Royalist cause. While the Cornish were fighting for their Royalist privileges, he approached the Prince with a plan that if implemented, would have the effect of creating a semi-independent Cornwall. If Mebyon Krenow prevales, as he has sought for many years that Cornwall be bestowed the position of a first order, this would put Cornwall on the same level as Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Regions of England, which is one of 'home nation'.
In 2000, the Cornish Constitituional Convention started a campaign for a Cornish Assembly. A cross-party movement that represented many political voices and positions within Cornwall. The Cornish Constitutional Convention which is composed of a number of political groups within Cornwall, produced about fifty thousand signatures in the year 2000, on a petition to create a Cornish Assembly. This assembly would closely rememble that of the National Assembly for Wales.
This petition was undertaken because of an ongoing debate as to the devolution of power to the English regions, Cornwall being part of the South West. John Angarrack of Cornwall 2000, which is a Human Rights organization, has produced two books, one called 'Breaking the Chains and the other called Our Future is History. These two books detail a large percentage of the core issued of the Cornish national movement, it also re-examines Cornish history. In 2001, campaigners prevailed upon the United Kingdon census to count Cornish ethnicity as a 'write-in' option on the national census, as there was no separate Cornish check box.
