I will start using the Roud numbers. I'm not sure about Beam of Oak, need a definition of which ballads fall there- see post above- but I'm willing to work with the Roud numbers in place.
I do not have Ronnie Clark's recent edition of The Mansfield Manuscript. Please email copy or post here.
I'm still trying to organize the foundation which is why I need as many of the older broadsides you have. I also need Grieg/Duncan.
There are a number of ballads which will be under the Died for Love umbrella and a number of them will be separate and listed as appendices. Right now I have:
7A. The Sailor Boy, or, Sweet William (Roud 273; Laws K12)
7B. Love Has Brought Me To Despair [Roud?] This is not or should not be part of Roud 60 since it's based on a different broadside.
