Thread Name: Origins: When First I Went to Caledonia
Subject: When first I came to Caledonia
The song starts "When first I came to Caledonia And I got loading at number 3 And I got lodgings with Donald Norman He had a daughter that made good tea."

Does anybody know the history/background to this song? Who wrote it, where is it set and when? The placenames as far as I can make out are Guardioma? and Erwick harbour?
