Thank you, Linus, for the one example.

The counter-examples seem to me still to be overwhelming.
I have found the following: 

war an x 147
waran x 1
var an x 10
vor an x 3
wor an x 8

and Lhuyd writes uar an x 10.

The scribes of both Middle and Late Cornish seem to have believed the collocation
of war + an to contain two syllables.
I think I shall continue for the present to consider war’n less authentic than war an (wàr an in KS).

Nicholas
