Comes From Cornwall

Cornish means something that comes from Cornwall. For those who are unfamiliar with that name, it is the region situated at the southwestern tip of England, which has been inhabited by the Cornish for a long, long time. It is interesting to note that once upon a time, Cornwall was famous because of its tin production, which turned it into an important stop in a trade network that extended to the Levantine. This is because tin was one of the materials needed to produce bronze, which in turn, meant that Bronze Age civilizations had a huge interest in the sites where said metal could be found because of its relative scarcity. Unfortunately, tin mining and other forms of mining have more-or-less ceased in modern Cornwall, which has had a negative impact on its economy, with the result that the region has become much more reliant on its agriculture, its fishing, and its tourism. Suffice to say that this means that Cornwall isn’t exactly one of the wealthiest regions in the United Kingdom.
