Reiver 2 Lyr Req: Maggie Lawder / Maggie Lauder (10) RE: Maggie Lawder+blatherskite 15 May 05


Fantastic! Many thanks Brucie and Malcolm! I never hoped to get so much information so quickly. Through the links you provided and the Maggie Lauder thread, most of my questions are answered, plus several I didn't even get around to asking. Silly me. I should have realized that Lawder (the spelling in the book I referred to) would not have been the probable Scots spelling, and that to use the DT, one needs to try different spellings of names if you want to find what you're looking for! (BTW, the book I have was written by Charles Earle Funk of Funk & Wagnalls fame. Just proves that even compilers of dictionaries don't know everything.) I wonder if Harry Lauder was a descendant of Maggie?? Thanks again guys. Now I'll have to get a recording of the song before I'll be completely satisfied.
