Subject: Too Thorough, Yet Not Enough
Zither
2010-04-12
While Bannistre was so thorough as to include pages of the names for which he could not find a legitimate meaning (mere guesswork not being legit), he was so particularly thoughtless as to rarely indicate whether the name is of a person or place, and, if a person, whether male or female. He does mark family names "n. f." A few manumitted female slaves are the only known women: the male slaves and all the manumitters and witnesses can also be picked out. That's a pitiful small number of Cornish names, especially when so many are marked as being obviously "t." for Teutonic: the Anglo-Saxon invaders. On the whole, then, consider this a book of place-names and family names: any personal names will be difficult or impossible to locate.
