That's the first time I've heard that expression used by someone outside my
immediate family (worms etc). Is it widespread, or just Cornish?

Subject: Rollcall - Was it something I said?
I have been watching the Roll-call with some interest and a sense of
I have four names (incl variants) and nobody else has mentioned them! I
think I may have to go down the garden and eat worms.........
My names are:
TREMEWAN (Over the years a circuit from Mithian, Perranzabuloe and St Agnes
via St Columb, St Wenn, Lanivet, Luxulyan, Illogen, St Austell and Roche);
Some headed for Swansea, Darlington, America (California and Michigan), New
Zealand, South Australia.and South Africa.
TREMEWEN ( sometimes TREMEWAN, sometimes PERMEWAN) from St Buryan spreading
into other West Penwith Parishes from the late 1600's - eventually spreading
into Liverpool. Some headed for Australia. One family went to the USA.
PERMEWAN apparently originating in St Buryan before spreading into other
West Penwith Parishes and on to Liverpool or Australia.
I'd be very interested in any messages from families that they married!
John Tremewan in Auckland, NZ
