Dr. Nicholas John Anselm Williams (Golvan 1962) resigned.
William David Mudd (Map Arwenack 1967) resigned.
Craig Weatherhill (Delynyer Hendhyscans 1981) resigned.
Patricia Lay (Myrghs Altarnon 1992) resigned.

That's it. Four of them. And the Gorseth seems to make a lot of this. 
What's it mean? The honour is bestowed for service to Cornwall (apart 
from the "language-bardships" by examination). That service was done, 
the honour awarded. What does "resignation" mean? Is it when one just 
quits paying his or her dues?
