The Cornishman is a weekly newspaper based in Penzance, Cornwall, United Kingdom which was first published on 18 July 1878. Circulation for the first two editions was 4,000. An edition is printed every Thursday.
It formerly had a separate edition to cover the Isles of Scilly. However, it now just has one edition which covers the whole of the Penwith peninsula as well as the Isles of Scilly. It is part of the Cornwall & Devon Media. In 2012, Local World acquired Cornwall & Devon Media owner Northcliffe Media from Daily Mail and General Trust.
Historical copies of The Cornishman, dating back to 1878, are available to search and view in digitised form at The British Newspaper Archive.
