Merroir? Wonder what Alger Willis would say to that!

March 21, 2013 § Leave a comment

Here’s a longish piece about Core Sound Seafood, its founders, and how it works, from the blog Southern Terroir:

Southern Terroir writes about Core Sound Seafood, local accents, and a younger generation of the Willis family. Are these Willises related to Alger Willis?
Or perhaps I should say how are they related to Alger Willis?

One thing interesting to me–the author talks about the area accent, describing it as “an almost Australian sounding brogue.”  I always associated that accent with the Cornwall region of England, but to be fair, my only knowledge of Cornwall accents comes from the old PBS/Masterpiece Theatre miniseries Poldark.  I should look it up, but makes sense that there might be  a Cornwall-Australia-Core Banks connection.
