The reference to Bonaparte dates this song to the early 19th Century, but apart from that nothing else is known about the song, nor have other versions come to light. The Hawkesbury Volunteers were mentioned in the “London St James Chronicle or British Evening Post” in 1806.

The location in question must be Hawkesbury Upton.
