The cornets were expected to play the more technical flowery musical lines, comparable in some selections with level of difficulty of the clarinet parts, while the trumpets added a brilliant punctuation to the music, rarely playing legato passages.
However, cornets are also made in other shapes, including the traditional trumpet shape, making it nearly impossible to tell at sight if one of these trumpet-shaped instruments is a cornet or a trumpet.
The definitive difference is the bore shape, which in a cornet is roughly one-third cylindrical and two-thirds conical, and in a modern trumpet is roughly half cylindrical and half conical.

 Notes on the Name Cornet - as in Castle Cornet, Guernsey
But medieval surnames were often descriptive nicknames, so this name could refer to, for example, a loud voice, the fact that the person lived on the corner of the street, the shape of the hats he may have made or sold, or he may have made or sold musical instruments.
Cornet was probably the first Bordier (feudal official) for Fief le Roi in that area of St Peter Port, and gave his name to the bordage (area of land) for which he was responsible.

It is my understanding that slide cornets and trumpets are somewhat difficult to play because the positions on the slide are very closely spaced.
Since the cornet is a "semi-conical" instrument, putting the tuning slide in the bell would make it even more cylindrical than it already is turning it more and more into a trumpet.
In vaudeville and jazz orchestras this slide cornet is used to produce startling glissando and novelty effects.
