As Richard Mellish 12 Aug 15 - 03:20 PM said, many songs pretend to be older (and more "folkish") than they are. As with all other objects, old folk music was "forged" as soon as it became widely appreciated by collectors. The 19th century marks the climax of that era, starting about 1760 with "Ossian".
