Thanks for all of these.
Derek, Your call. I will include all of those downloads from Topic where I am short of a reference, otherwise I will still use my above criteria to give priority to refs that are derived from the versions in TWS or are by source singers. If I don't have a cut-off point we could carry on for another 20 years and we'll never get it published.

Here's an update of the tracks we're still looking for.
The Barley Raking
Better for Maids to Live Single
The Boatswain and the Tailor
Bright Phoebus
Shady Green Tree
Gay Ploughboy
John White
Jolly Joe the Collier's Son
Mathew the Miller
Molly and William =False-hearted William
My Good Old Man
Oh dear how I long to get married
Old Woman's Song
The Roving Bachelor
Seven months I've been married
Harry Clifton's Watercresses
Young Johnny/Roger the Ploughboy

Reinhard, Can you confirm 'PB's Jolly Roving Tar is Roud 913 please?
