Cream tea - jam first or cream first?

I was wondering which was more popular: cream first or jam first?

According to google the cornish cream tea has the jam first then the cream but the Devon cream tea has the cream first then the jam.

Are you from either county? Do you follow your county's rules?

Thoughts please

Cream first. Unless I am in Cornwall then I will do it jam first so as not to offend them and end up being banished!

Cream first because how the heck to you spread cream on the top of jam without wiping off the jam?!!

It's more like blobbing cream on top of jam rather than spreading. It is possible.

I don't like cream enough to blob it on though. I basically 'butter' the scone with it

Cream then jam my reasoning is cream is closest to butter and butter always goes on first if spreading toast or even having buttered scones instead

I went vegan a year ago so now I don’t eat cream or scones �� Before that though, I would always put the cream on first, then the jam. Now it’s just rusty spoons for me *sigh*
