Thread Name: Origins: Fakenham Fair
Subject: RE: Origins: Fakenham Fair
Both songs seem to be unique to the Bullen family, and likely enough originated with them. There were suggestions made in a discussion a while back on the Ballad-L list (I had forgotten that Fakenham Fair had been mentioned as well) that there might have been a hoax involved somewhere along the line, but probably we will never know.
