This fellow is a Cornish Rumplestiltskin style version of a Devil, who appears in an old Cornish Christmas play or a guise dance called “Duffy and the Devil” originally from the Penwith area.
Also known as drolls, this story involves a girl, called Duffy who is taken in by Squire Lovell of Trove, and set to spinning yarn after claiming she can make the finest stockings. This, however is untrue, and she makes a pact with a Bucca (Cornish meaning: Devil) that he should spin the yarnin return for joining him after three years has passed, unless she can tell him his name upon asking, in which case she can stay. After witnessing a sabbath with witches, the Squire (who had since taken Duffy as his wife) overheard the Bucca:
Bucca-Boo: “I have knit and spun for her
Three years to the day,
To-morrow she will ride with me,
Over land and over sea,
Far away! Far away!
For she can never know
That my name is Tarraway!”
