Speaking as a proudly Somerset born-and-bred female, I would have said a person from Somerset was a "Somersetian". My husband (a Cockney) would probably say, "A yokel", but he doesn't know any better!;-)

Cheers!

Coming from deep dark somerset, I've been refered to as a zedlander because of the way I speak. people from somerset pronounce it zumerzet and "he said" becomes "he zed" and of course cider is pronounced "zider" Hope this helps

I recommend that you call anyone from Somerset "A Friend" -Somerset is without doubt the best county in all the British Isles, Bar None! I am very pround to let it be known that Somerset is my home even though through force of circumstances I do not live there now. We are the "Lake Dwellers" or "Somersetians" as someone has already remarked on, referring to those of us who lived on the islands of Somerset when it was under water, open to the sea and only the Brent Knoll fortress to guard against the invaders to Glastonbury and Wedmore (differently named then)

One Blagdon family has been "cardon-dated" to Ancient British times using the genes investigation method.
