oops haven't looked at this thread for ages - -- re Sandeman, I know an excellent musician (fiddle/violin and accordion both folk and classical)originally from Killearn who is a Sandeman----last time I was in contact he was a scientist in Cambridge but still playing music, in a ceilidh/country dance band and also classical gigs.

Re Duke Street Jail (womens' prison?) -

Down in Duke Street Jail
Where all the prisoners stand

Dirty water fer therr tea
There they live in miseree
