After that it goes on having enough time verses written so you’re able to echo Cornish dialect, associated the new fulfilling of one’s miner ‘Cousin Jack/Jacky’ along with his housemaid, Mary, in addition to their next speak and you may deeds. Amazingly, an equivalent pamphlet also offers proof to have ‘Cousin Jan’ and perhaps Jenny-both The month of january and you can Jenny can be found to other emails regarding text message of your own poem, recommending it also was named antique names to own Cornish letters, and ‘Cousin phlets which can be claimed on the rear out of A good Cornish Ghost Tale, namely The fresh Bal, or, ‘Tes an effective Bra’ Keenly Lode, Relative Jan’s Story (earliest authored within Helston during the 1850) and its sequel Relative Jan’s Courtship and Marriage (basic authored at the Truro inside the 1859), each other by William Bentinck Forfar. The earliest of these, wrote 36 months through to the basic reference regarding the OED reference to Cousin Jan (that is, in reality, obtained from a newspaper ad because of it brochure off 1853, as the OED will not explore this), includes another passage:

If you can easily listen to me personally for a moment, your shallHear all about looking to and working an excellent Bal;How the Lode try found by the a small hazel twig,Sent along the ground from the particular knowing old prig. ,’Tes this new keenliest gozan thee previously ded’st find. (13)

Relative ple of your own ore to a master Polglaze, ‘a Purser, notorious, Who easily, by exploration, a refreshing kid had grown’. The guy declares that they have to go to London area to boost funds (‘The ran as much as Bristol because of the a steamer of Hayle, And you can proceeded regarding Bristol to London by the rail’), and their thrill will be recounted inside the Cornish dialect of the Cousin Jan. After that, the design ‘Cousin Jan’ is located in a few Cornish papers content from the 1860s on the 1890s as the term away from a Cornish ‘everyman’ otherwise since the an over-all title to have Cornishmen/Cornish miner, we.elizabeth. it looks having functioned since a version style of ‘Cousin Jack’/’Cousin Jacky’. It is backed by the reality that ‘Cozen Jan’ very first seems for the Forfar’s poem as an element of an expression one looks essentially just like Christopher Kid’s antique Cornish miner’s keywords “Com’se together Cousin Jacky”.

Of course, so it passageway would seem to add research having an excellent Cornish usage of ‘Cousin Jack/Jacky’ to possess a good miner still-living inside the Cornwall some time about 1850s otherwise early 1860s

The second publication that further illustrates an early usage of ‘Cousin Jack’ and similar in Britain, without obvious reference to Cornish emigrants, is a report in The Cornish Telegraph for 27 September 1854. This briefly recounted the exhumation of a miner who fell down the shaft of Pednandrea Mine, Redruth in the 1820s. The rediscovery of his remains apparently prompted ‘great excitement’ and his funeral procession on Sunday, 17 September 1854, was attended by four thousand people, equal to around half of the population of Redruth at that time. What is particularly striking is that, although his real name is given as John Stephens, the newspaper notes that in life he was ‘better known as “Cousin Jack Cobbler,”‘(14) something that obviously suggests the use of the nickname ‘Cousin Jack’ in Cornwall as far back as the 1820s. The status of Stephens’ alternative name as a nickname is confirmed by the report on the inquest hookup places near me Kalgoorlie Australia published the previous week in the Royal Cornwall Gazette:

Cozen The month of january, d’ee started ‘long wi’ myself

On Saturday the 16th instant, an inquest was held. on the body of John Stephens, aged 25 years. According to the evidence of William Thomas, miner, it appeared that as long ago as the 9th of August, 1828, the deceased and his brother were employed in stripping the shaft, and drawing up the materials in the Pednandrea Mine, near Redruth. The deceased and witness both fell into the shaft together. Dead are infamous throughout the neighbourhood because of the nickname from “Relative Jack Cobbler.”(15)
