Cornish turns up in the strangest places...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godolphin_School

Quote:
The Godolphin School is an independent school for 400 girls situated in Salisbury, founded in 1707[1] and established in 1726 by Charles and Elizabeth Godolphin.[2]

The arms and motto of the School are those of the Godolphin family. The motto - ‘Franc ha leal eto ge’ – is old Cornish and means ‘Frank and loyal are ye’.

Quote:
The Godolphin and Latymer School is an independent school for 700 girls aged eleven to eighteen in London. Miss Margaret Rudland was the head mistress of the school for over 20 years, but she has now been replaced by Mrs Ruth Mercer...

The school motto is an ancient Cornish phrase, Francha Leale Toge [sic], which translates as "free and loyal art thou"...


With tonnes of famous former pupils from Sophie Ellis-Bextor to Nigella Lawson, Davina McCall (she kept that quiet) etc.

 Random Information. 
 1549 - War between Cornish and English... The 5th, the final engagment came, the rebels (Cornish) were outmanoevred and surrounded, and great was the slaughter and cruel was the fight, and such was the valour and stoutness of these men that the Lord Grey reported himself that he never in all the wars that he had been did he know the like. The Devonshire men went north up the valley of the Exe, where they were overtaken and cut to pieces by Sir Gawen Carew, who left the corpses of their leaders, hanging on gibbets from Dunster to Bath.
