Subject: RE: Origins: Child Ballads: US Versions Part 2
Hi,

I'm now on Lord Lovel. My question is concerning US broadsides. The broadside found at American Memory says:

Lord Lovel. J. Andrews, Printer, 38 Chatham St. N. Y. [n. d.]

Is there a way to find out approximately when it was printed? Here's a view:

There are several parody versions from the US in the 1860s when it was popular.
