"The position of the Isles of Scilly and the means by which it became part of the Duchy of Cornwall is a matter of some ambiguity. Some would argue that is a state of affairs which is conveniently maintained by the Duchy."

And the British State will try to deny any Cornishness that the Isles of Scilly has. It's a classic tactic. They're already trying to revise the history - true, they've always been away from most of Cornwall, but they were Cornish speaking. Don't say you weren't warned.

Interesting paper here on the Duchy of Lancaster and its exemption from the FOI act.

Appeal to the Information Commissioner in respect of a request under the
Environmental Information Regulations to the Duchy of Lancaster

Is anybody going to John Kirkhopes talk in Redruth?

It's at Kresenn Kernow on the 6th of March at 7pm and will be about Cornish law.

 Random Information. 
 The Cornish Rebellion of 1497 was a popular uprising by the people of Cornwall in the far south west of Britain. Its primary cause was the raising of war taxes by King Henry VII on the impoverished Cornish for a campaign against Scotland, motivated by brief border skirmishes that were inspired by Perkin Warbeck's pretence to the English throne. Tin miners were angered as the scale of the taxes violated previous rights granted by Edward I of England to the Cornish Stannary Parliament which exempted Cornwall from all taxes of 10ths or 15ths of income. The Cornish had little sympathy for English wars against Scotland, considering that most Cornish were not English speakers at that time.
