In his Notennow Kernewek the late Ray Edwards discusses
alyon 'stranger, alien' and estren 'stranger, alien' and says correctly
that alyon occurs twice in BM. On the other hand, he says, that estren
is unattested. This is not strictly true since Lhuyd in his Preface  
writes:

geffya e foto dho Estren pel-pou 'forgive a foreigner from a far  
country his mistakes' AB: 222.

What Edwards does not mention is that the commonest word for  
'stranger' is
stranger which occurs twice in Tregear and now once in BK.
