The Glasgow Poets Box also printed a broadside version of JIHKY in 1867 so it begins to look like it originated then or just before. Brereton of Dublin also printed it and his dates are usually given as c1860. Such of London, Pearson of Manchester and Sanderson of Edinburgh also printed it but these were all printing well into the late 19thc. It wouldn't surprise me to find that Geoghegan wrote it. Some of his songs are still sung in folk clubs today. The Capital Ship, Hey John Barleycorn, Glossop Road. Though born in Lancs as Malcolm says, like Malcolm he must have lived in Sheffield for a long time.
