Cornish turns up in the strangest places...


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’.


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 Miss Margaret Rudland was the head mistress of the school for over 20 years, but she has now been replaced by Mrs Ruth Mercer...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. 
 For many Cornish people and Cornwall, the Duchy, as shown by the Officers of the Duchy of Cornwall in 1855 in its dispute with the Crown over the ownership of the Cornish Foreshore, has quite a different significance, based on the original Acts and Charters of its creation. Cornwall itself in this framework is described, de jure, as a Duchy (as opposed to an ordinary county), and the Duchy estates are distinguished from the Duchy itself, having themselves been annexed and united to "the aforesaid Duchy". The Duke of Cornwall may even be described as Cornwall's head of state.
