Subject: RE: Origins: Child Ballads: US Versions Part 6
Richie I assume it is the same ballad, looking at the full title.
Also Roxburghe vol 7 footnote refers to it as How the Devil was gull'd by a Scold (and also in the index for this volume). The footnote specifies the date June, 1630.
I was wondering if there's a Stationers' Register entry for it, but haven't turned it up so far.
