Might be wrong here but...Can I ask, are there surnames which are specifically Cornish, as in Cornish language, not English (and I don't mean fakey concoctions from English-origin surnames, rather actual Cornish surnames)?
Hmmm, wonder what the prefix means. Cornish is basically 'south Welsh', I'd have thought their surnames would have been Ap-this or Ap-that in the original. Perhaps Tre/Tra is a specific local variation?Might be wrong here but...
By Tre, Tra, Tren you may know the cornish men.
sure your only a settler Quizmaster but still a celtThat would make me Cornish. My surmane starts like one of those.
But I'm not, I'm Irish. Ulster through and through.
could be right.What about Pen- ?
Isn't that a Cornish prefix too?

Wonder what our unionist brethern on here make of all this.Once more for the UK census people will be able to record their ethnic and/or national identity as Cornish. Equally they will be able to register their country of birth as Cornwall. The problem, as last time, is that they will all be write-in options. Full details can be found here: 2011 Census ? Cornish Identity
Facebook and Twitter accounts also exist. A simple search will find them.
