Cornwall – Did you know…?
The Annales Cambriae reported that in 722 AD the Britons of Cornwall were victors in battle at Hehil (possibly on the Camel estuary or further north near Bude) among the Cornish (apud Cornuenses), presumably against the West Saxons. Annales Cambriae. A century passed before we hear of the West Saxons attacking Cornwall again, this time under King Egbert, who in 814 laid waste to Cornwall from east to west. The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle tells us that in 825 (adjusted date) a battle was fought between the "Welsh" in Cornwall and the people of Devonshire, probably at Galford in Devon. Finally, in 838, the Cornish and their Viking allies were defeated by Egbert at Hengestesdune, probably Hingston Down near Moretonhampstead, Devon or Callington, Cornwall (Anglo-Saxon Chronicle). William of Malmesbury (Gesta regum Anglorum, about 1120) says that in about 936 the English King Athelstan fixed the boundary between English and Cornish people as the east bank of the river Tamar, their having previously lived as equals in Exeter.
