Following an investigation, a man was arrested on August 19 last year and taken to Great Yarmouth Police Investigation Centre for questioning.
Cornell was later charged in connection with the two incidents.
Detective constable Matt Fox, investigating officer, said: “Police, in conjunction with the victims, are pleased with the sentence handed to Cornell.
“In both instances, the families have been left in shock following the invasion into their homes when irreplaceable and sentimental jewellery was stolen.
"As part of the investigation, we were able to return a number of the items to the families, which I am sure will bring them some peace of mind and comfort.”
