(1) Strength in 1749, 150 all ranks. Moved to the Bahama Islands, in 1755 and disbanded in 1763.

(2) Still serving in 1755, having the same rank, as shown in the Army List of that year.

IDENTIFICATION OF CJELLWIC. The assign- ment of three estates in Cornwall to the Bishop of Sherborne by King Egbert in some year between 810 and 840 is well known.

The estates were Polltun, Ceellwic and Landwithan. The first and last of these have been acceptedly identified with Pawton in St. Breock and Lawhitton. In regard to Csellwic (a) Callington which was never in the hands of the Bishop of Exeter and (6) Kelly, part of the Episcopal manor of Berner in Egloshayle have been put forward as claimants. Those who support the former point to the fact that the name appears as Cselling in the Missal of Bishop Leofric now in the Bodleian. Mr. T. W. Rundell discussing the matter in Devon & Cornwall Notes and Queries, vol. vii. p. 269 (1913) points out that in a Rental of 1538-39 given in Maclean's 'Hist, of Trigg Minor,' vol. i. p. 433, an alias for Kelly Parva is given as Kellygnate. He is of the opinion that Kelly and not Callington is the place meant.

Before the point can be settled these names should be carefully studied by a

competent paleographer in the original documents or in photographic reproductions of them.

The letters t and c, u and ri, as is well known, are much alike and present the greatest difficulty to readers of old docu- ments. Then, too, in may be misread as ui, and vice versa.

If such misreadings have taken place in this case then " Csellwg " should be Csellwig, which is a quite allowable variant for Csellwic. And again Kellygrcafe should be Kellyguace which is not far removed from Csellwic. The chief difficulty is the insertion of the slender vowel between the two themes, ccell and wic. An explanation for this is that the long drawn out sound of the double I eventually necessitated the inter- position of a vowel before the succeeding w.. J. HAMBLEY ROWE.
