Subject: RE: Lyr Add: The Death of Poor Bill Brown
I neglected to mention that the In Seventeen hundred and sixty-nine song, which Kidson considered originally to have been set to The Mill, the Mill O, is credited in The Sheffield Mercury, October 22, 1836, to the blind fiddler Johnny Gibbons of Darnall, near Sheffield. Information from The South Riding Song Book, Paul Davenport, 1998.
