GUEST,Elizabeth Origins: Do ye ken John Peel? (152* d) RE: Origins: Do ye ken John Peel? 10 Aug 06

D'ye ken John Peel was written by John Woodcock Graves. I know this because I am related to him. He was born in 1795 and died in Hobart in 1886. When he came to Australia he was granted alot of land in Bruny Island. He got married twice and came to Australia with his six children. I am unaware if there are any "Graves" left in the family today. There was a memorial service held for him there around the 1950's. I'd like to know where I could get a copy of the song, otherewise I'll have to record it on the piano. If you googlesearch "John Woodcock Graves" you will find a heap of information on him.
