GUEST,GUTCHER Origins: Jolly Rogues of Lynn (65* d) RE: Origins: Jolly Rogues of Lynn 20 Sep 13

In a post in OCTOBER 05 a version of the song has Old King Cole as the father, Kyle, the middle part of Ayrshire takes its name from the said king with that part of Ayrshire to the North of Kyle being the home of the Lynns of Lynn one of whom features in the ballad "The Heir Of Lynn"

"The bonny heir the weel faured heir
and the weary heir o Lynn
yonder he stauns at his faithers yett
an naebody bids him cum in"

There is also a place called Lynn on Tweedside.
