"'He is to be summoned before the Mayor of Halgaver.'
This is a joculary and imaginary court, wherewith men make merriment to themselves, presenting such persons who go slovenly in their attire : where judgment in formal terms is given against them, and executed more to the scorn than hurt of the persons.
[Halgavor was a moor near Bodmin. Al that remains now is a housing estate, a farm and some enclosed fields.]
