Thread Name: Origins: Froggy Went A-Courtin'
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Froggy Went A-Courtin'
Hmmm ! - Just a thought - Could "A frog he went a courting" have been adappted as an 'Anti-Gallacian' stance in the 1790's/1800's.

I very distantly recall, somewhere, seeing a "gilray" type print on this theme.

Tricocked hat, sword and buckler might, I repeat might, support this.
