Pre-occlusion is probably much older than its first appearance in BM (secunda manus).
Pre-occlusion is common in Manx, but it is not shown in writing until the 19th century.
I agree completely that Rowe was a native speaker.
John Boson and Wm Gwavas probably weren't.
Nicholas Boson like Wm Bodinar learnt Cornish as a boy, rather than as a baby.
I'm sure you are correct, Craig, in believing that Cornish MSS are lying undiscovered.
Since the revival began we've had Tregear and BK. I just hope I live long enough to see the next discovery.
