  Apart from the toponym Valy Ebron there are, as far as I am aware, no
  examples in the texts of valy 'valley'. There are no examples of nans
  'valley' in the texts either.Since the author of CW wrote Valy Ebron
  for the new toponym Valy of Hebron, it seems to me (without further
  evidence) that his ordinary word for 'valley' was valy.....
