bigJ Origins: The Silk Merchant's Daughter (26) RE: The Silk Merchant's Daughter 20 Oct 99

The Cecil Sharp Collection (Karpeles) has three versions - song No.91 in Volume One, all under the title of 'The Miser's Daughter or The Silkmerchant's Daughter'. None of these versions mentions the indians. There are two versions collected in Bridgewater, Somerset and one from Tewkesbury, Goucestershire. In her notes Maud Karpeles suggests comparing the song with 'The Ship in Distress'
