child did not have the Percy papers until after the first edition came out, which had versions A-U.

In Additions and Corrections:

Add:   V. 'Benorie,' Campbell Manuscripts, II, 88.
       W. 'Norham, down by Norham,' communicated by Mr. Thomas Lugton, of Kelso.
       X. 'Binnorie,' Dr. Joseph Robertson's Note-Book, January 1, 1830, p. 7, one stanza.
       Y. Communicated to Percy by Rev. P. Parsons, April 7, 1770.

Then later Z was added.

Barry however, had AA-EE, five additional versions- one of which came from Ireland by way of the US (Iowa) which has not been published. I was trying see what versions Barry said AA-CC were.
