GUEST,LynnH Wizz Jones and Lord Franklin BBC Radio4 (11) RE: Wizz Jones and Lord Franklin BBC Radio4 28 Aug 14

@GUEST: perhaps because 'Sir John Franklin' doesn't scan and flow off the tongue in the way that 'Lord Franklin' does. Try it. I also doubt very much whether the broadside writing hacks from Seven Dials and the common people who took up the song cared very much about the difference between 'Sir' and 'Lord'- they were all aristocracy, weren't they, whatever the handle to the name!
