John Moulden Origins: The Weaver and the Factory Maid (38) RE: the weaver and the factory maid 02 Aug 00

For me, the interest of this song is partly in the reference to the county of Down;which gives it a north Irish link. Bruce, I can't find the song of Will the weaver and Charity the chambermaid in either the Bodleian or in vol 1 of Holloway and Black; can you clarify the sources of the various songs which you believe are linked? I have Roy's article.
