I don't think so. 
The full quotation is: 

arluth ple then alemma
thy'n the gemeres trygfa
na theffo den vyth gynen
ha pygyn dev gallosek
del esen agan vnnek
ha na moy gor na benen RD 2391-96

Lord, where shall we go hence
to acquire for ourselves a habitiation, 
so that no man may come with us,
and we will pray to mighty God
as we are eleven of us
and no more, man or woman?

vnnek clearly means 'eleven' not 'sole, solitary'.
George makes the same mistake in his 2009 dictionary,
who follows Pryce A a 3.
