A variant of the tune was published in Chappell's Popular Music of the Olden Time, (London, 1856) Vol. II, page 748, with the words (incomplete) "We are poor frozen out gardeners". Chappel remarked
This is the tune of many songs. If the reader should meet any half-a-dozen men perambulating the streets of London together, and singing, the probabilities are great that they sing to this tune....I recollect hearing the tune at Kilburn, full forty years ago, and have, with tolerable annual regularity, ever since. I regret never having stopped to hear the words.
Chapel has "corrected" the tune by raising the sub-tonic a half-tone, but it is still recognizably very close to Kingsfold
