Marked in Johnson’s dictionary’ list of markets as Wardbridge, Cornwall and noted for a Saturday market, so possibly an alternative to Wadebridge. 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.

Edward Lhuyd’s manuscript of Cornish is available

online at the website of the National Library of Wales.

On page 117 (the library’s page 121) Lhuyd gives

Ponz warda angl. Wardbridge (see the screenshot below).

Where is this? Or is Wardbridge another name for Wadebridge?
