Thread Name: Origins: Maid of Australia / Maids of Australia
Subject: RE: Maid of Australia
I have previously had cause to doubt some of the attributions on Kennedy's Carpenter CDs, and this may be another such case.

The Carpenter index lists seven songs from Yeaman/Yeoman, which do not include Maid of Australia. In addition there is a separate sheet listing Yeaman's repertoire. As that is 7 lines long, we may perhaps safely infer that it contains the 7 songs in the online index.

In that case the singer on the CD is unlikely to be Yeaman, and may be Prosser or Gaul.
