Does anyone know of any ballads or folk songs related to the Banbury mutiny, and the subsequent executions in Burford on 17 May 1649 of three soldiers on the orders of Oliver Cromwell?

Would Levellers and Diggers apply?




Banbury Mutiny: was a mutiny by soldiers in the English New Model Army. The mutineers did not achieve all of their aims and some of the leaders were executed shortly afterwards on 17 May 1649...This destroyed the Levellers' power base in the New Model Army.

Have you tried the Bodleian broadside archive? I'd be surprised if there wasn't a ballad about it, but I'd be even more surprised if there was a singable one.
