I rechecked my facts and must apologize for errors in my earlier posting about the Daniell immigrant to South Africa in 1820. He was Richard (not Robert) Daniell, b. 1790, Sidbury, co. Devon, England, d. Newlands, Cape, 9 Sept 1868. I have some additional details on this Richard Daniell of Devon and South Africa, but not his ancestry. While I canít say whether he might tie in with the Daniell family of Truro and Treslissick, co. Cornwall, the name Richard does run in the latter family. Back to your question about a Robert in the Daniell family of Cornwall, I have found an occurrence of the name Robert in that family, but that is much earlier (1600s). I would be interested in seeing if a link can be proved between the the Daniell family of Truro in the 1500s and the earlier Daniell family of Cheshire.
