I heard that Cushy Butterfield was a Prostitute that is thought to have lived some time in the late 1700's on Newcastle/Gateshead Quayside.

The sailors who would travel up the Tyne from far and wide would sing songs about her as they did about other women they had met in different ports and that is how the song we hear today came into being.
