Cornwall has a strong Protestant heritage, where Methodism is the main denomination. Nearly every village has at least one Methodist church: some small villages have more than one Methodist church and no church from any other denomination. It iscommon to be driving along a backroad and find a Methodist church in the middle of nowhere, with settlements in the vacinity other than a tiny hamlet witha couple of houses, still holding regular Sunday services with a good attendance.
The stereotype of the Cornish as 'inbred' and 'backward' is a misconception and, if repeated to a local, is likely to cause embrassement and offence (and perhaps a smack). Cornwall is generally quite ethnically homogenous in comparison to most areas of the UK, and Cornish people tend to hold onto traditional morals and lifestyles. They are also slightly more conservative than the UK as a whole and are very patriotic.
Cornwell Quality Tools Company v. Barnes, American Arbitration Association Case No. 53 114 E 00759 10, was filed by Cornwell against Geoffrey L. and Michelle R. Barnes on September 9, 2010, seeking recovery of amounts owed on account. Mr. and Mrs. Barnes counterclaimed on October 18, 2010, seeking damages of $75,000.00 for wrongful termination. The matter was held in abeyance because of Mr. Barnes’ health issues and then was terminated by the AAA on October 5, 2012, when neither party paid the additional fees required to continue the matter. Mr. and Mrs. Barnes subsequently sought bankruptcy protection. Cornwell intends to contest the counterclaim very vigorously, if it is ever revived.
