Found the words here but no tune. It's a news article, and you have to scroll most of the way down to find the words. Will keep looking for the tune.

Thanks to TCARC for welcome and 2 replies ; Lyrics title: "Englands Honour Revived" originally from 1628, a ballad celebrating English capture of French settlements in Quebec. The original tune it was sung to was "King Henries going to Bulloyne' This info was from Ottawa Citizen newspaper - Mon. Feb.21/2000

Just checked Bruce O's website, and he has the ballad listed, but no tune for it (unless I missed it, which is possible). And I suspect, that if Bruce doesn't have it, it isn't there.

This came up on the Ballad-L list about a year ago. The ballad is ZN3457 in the broadside ballad index on my website. The tune was used for several ballads, but is unknown. It seems to have come from a 10 verse ballad in Thomas Deloney's 'The Gentle Craft' (p. 168 of F. O. Mann's 'Works of T... D..')., where the heading is "The Song of the winning of Bullen sung before the King by round Robin and his fellows'. I looked up, but forgot to write down the date of the taking of Bolougne by Henry VIII, but I think it was about 1537. [Thanks to Jamie Moriera for a copy of the ballad]

All known tunes for 16th and 17th century broadside ballads are given as ABCs on my website.

Sorry, Henry VIII sieged and captured Boulogne-Sur-Mer in 1544. Deloney's song doesn't look to me like a broadside ballad production.

In the month of October
Our King he would to Dover:
By leave of Father and the Sonne:
A great armie of men,
Well appointed there was then,
Before our noble King to come.

I am looking for the tune to go with the 1628 ballad so that my wife might be able to put this ballad into her preformances at apprpriate events.
As an historian I find the ballad interesting because while the Kirk's threatend Champlain at Kebec in 1628 they did not succeed in the capitulation of Kebec until the spring of 1629 when the "fort" at Kebec ran out of provitions because of the English blockade.

If you see Bruce O's post above you will see that although the tune was specified for several ballads it is unknown.

There is a recording on youtube a the moment: Quebec History. David Kirke - England's Honour Revived 1628-29, with a melody by Barry and Aaron Stead (who I presume are the singers).

Thanks Mick - just what I am looking for and the history stated on the video puts the ballad into the correct context.

Hello the Kirke's you talked about are my relatives. There is a ballad about them:

To the tune of King Henrie's Going to Bulloyne
Brave soldiers of this island
that fight by sea or by land,
Attention give unto this gallant newes....
upon the second day of May
On the coast of Canaday (Canada)
Our English vessels safely did arrive
and took a ship of
Biskany (Biskay)
The rest is lost to my understanding. written by Martin Parker who Prolifie ballad-writer through the reign of Charles the 1 into the civil war. He also stated praise to Captain Kirke oh had we many like him then England would in Credit swim and France nor Spaine could not against us stand"

The Gazette Wend Sept 9 1964 confirms this ballad says he won in 1628 they had been the talk of London. The ballad was to celebrate the first conquest of Canada in 1628 but was discovered in 1963 telling of the three ships (later five) expedition led by CPt David Kirke and his brothers. 132 line ballad was in 2 parts. The expedition called England's honour
