    I’ve found another Dialect name for scones in the Murray Laver Devonshire Dialect Word Index –

    nobbies = the plain bread buns eaten with cream and jam

    This entry is followed by –

    Nobby = 1. A small raisin bun or cake
    2. A pet name to call a young colt

    Looking at the Murray Laver Devonshire Dialect Word Index I have found two references so far to the buns used for Devon team teas.
    1. nubbies = saffron buns or the plain bread-buns eaten with cream and jam
    2. hapuny buns = plain buns eaten with cream and jam

    This certainly accords with my experience as a child coming from Holsworthy – which I guess you could call North Devon. The ‘butter’ was the cream with the jam on top.
