I've compared the name to the three known Brythonic languages or (languages derived from Brythonic;) Cornish, Breton and Welsh and Cudmore must be an ANGLICIZATION of the varients meaning "large woods" or "great woods," in all three languages. I did not say it was a Welsh dirivative. I said Brythonic was similar to Welsh or, in fact, since Brythonic is the parent tongue, then Welsh would be similar to Brythonic. You can't toss out the similarities of the three Brythonic languages. And, as well, I did say it was Anglicized.
It is not Flemish, not Anglo-Saxon, not Danish, not Spanish, not French. So, I believe it is Celtic. Add to that, 80% of the current population of Devon has Celtic ancestry determined by DNA sampling.
