Patronymica Cornu-Britannica; or, The Etymology of Cornish Surnames


The commencement of the 18th century saw the extinction of the Celtic dialect of Cornwall. This dialect, which differs considerably from that of Wales and is most nearly allied to that of Bretagne, is now found only in the names of Cornish localities and in the surnames by many inhabitants of the county.
