The Folkways English and Scottis Ballads series gives "man of war - The Chambers Scots Dictionary gives 'tricky, mischievous and Barrier and Leland's 'Slang, Jargon and Cant' gives 'grand feast' (and also a ceremony connected with the legal profession
Take your pick
Will try 'Naval Ballads' and some of the older collections when 'Poldark' is finished
Good luck
