[Spellyans] in our, in your, in their

We all learnt from Nance that 'in our, in your, in their'  in Cornish are

y'gan
y'gas
y'ga.

The curious thing is this. Y'gan, i'gan does not seem to be attested. In agan on the other hand is attested 30 times. And yn agan occurs twice.
I am unable to find any example at all of y'gas, i'gas but yn agas x 5, in agys x 5, yn ages x 2.
Y'ga is found once as yge at RD 886. Yn aga, in aga on the other hand occur x 24.

I think the handbooks ought to be revised.
