Thread Name: Origins: Admiral Benbow
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Admiral Benbow (from June Tabor)
"We sailed to Virginia and thence to Fayal...."
was also recorded by Dave & Toni Arthur,"The Lark in the Morning",Topic 12T190.
From the sleeve notes: 'the version sung here is from Chappell's "Old English Popular Music".....The tune is a variant of 'Love Will Find Out The Way', first published in 1651..........Chappell collected it from hop-pickers in the mid nineteenth century, and Lucy Broadwood found it in Sussex in 1898.
Glad to be of service!
