Does someone have any information on the surname "West" in Cornwall? I would like to know about the distribution of the name in Kernow as well as its possible origin. In 1342 in "St. Peran's Parish" I found a Johannes [John] Westa in addition to a place name Westva in Roche. Any possible connexion?
