The Old Cornish Vocabulary contans some Welsh elements, such as ‹caus›. the first variant ‹cos› he gives, most likely stands for /œː/ and is the Cornish form.

>> While mentioning <keus>, "cheese", why is <eu> necessary? Granted that Breton has <keuz> and Welsh <caws> (apparently a very different vowel from Breton), but Cornish is neither of those. Late Cornish has <keaz>, and place-names <kez> (with circumflex over E): Carn Kez, Sennen. This tells me that, in Cornish, the vowel is a long E, almost "kaiz" in pronunciation.
