  • According to one of my sources, this is "a subordinate to a cattle/sheep drover". I'd say it's a safe bet the drover is Welsh.

    Elsewhere on the web, we may learn the following related Welsh words:

    gyrrwr
    (n.) driver; sender; drover

    gyrrwr disg galed
    (n.) hard disk drive

    gyrrwr eliffant
    (n.) mahout

    robin y gyrrwr
    (n.) gadfly

    Finally, we have a picture:

    Y Gyrrwr/The Driver

    If we hadn't already guessed it from cwm, it seems pretty clear that 'w' functions as a vowel in Welsh.
