    Cornwall is part of England. This is true, even if a lot of people don't like that fact.
    Okay, okay! If you insist. You Celtophiles are raving mad.

    Here you go then: Cornwall is part of England

    Though I originally hail from London, like most of the old towns residents, my historical ties do not lay there. The County that provides the highest percentage of my English ancestry is Lancashire, followed by Suffolk, though Suffolk is only marginally above the rest. I have no Northumbrian ancestry as of yet, though the chances of finding some is extremely slim, as all my English lines have been traced to the 1700's.

    Whilst I like the Celts in many ways, I'm not a "Celtophile".

    Wulfhere, you must surly know by now that the men of Wessex have caught wind of Mercia's intrigue with Kernow. Ready thyself

    Wessex has no need to fear Mercia, or attempt to halt its pathetic drive for independence. It is resoundingly mocked by all Englishmen.

    Taking over the forum!

    Hold your horses! What kingdom was Lancashire in!??!

    The entry for 919 in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle makes no bones about the Mersey as the border, with Manchester clearly noted as lying in Northumbrian territory.

    You are correct, I just cannot remove myself from seeing Northumbria as the merger of Deira and Bernicia

    Brennus and Belinus

    According to legend, these two brothers were the legendary founders of Bristol and their statues can be found at St John's Gate off Nelson Street.

    One story claims they fought in the Trojan war (it doesn't say on which side) after which they followed the Phoenician trade routes to Cornwall. They then fought each other over who should be king of Britain and Brennus ended up building Bristol.

    Evidence for this is supposed to be that the Romans called Bristol Caer Bren, or the city of Brennus. The statues, anachronistically, wear crucifixes.

    Bristol had little recorded history before the Saxons arrived in the 8th Century and killed the British kings of Gloucester, Cirencestor and Bath at a battle believed to have been at Dyrham
    I may well choose to be whomever my real or imagined local history allows thanks.

    No. Serbia is Serbian and Germany is German, just as Cornwall is not England.

    S O rbia.

    You're being idealist again. Cornwall has been part of the Kingdom of England since the latter even existed. Nations are not totally separated from political realities. Parts of Cornwall have indeed seen Saxon settlement, as early or earlier as that in some parts of Shropshire and Lancashire.
