I noticed that entry in Johnson’s dictionary.
If, as seems likely, Wardbridge is an alternative name for Wadebridge, and Ponz warda is 
the attested Cornish name from 1701-07, perhaps Ponswarda might be useful as the
modern Cornish name.

I somehow doubt whether a smaller place would have had a market large enough to make this list – Stratton and West Looe are also there – haven’t looked for more.
