Performer: Smith, Samuel
Place Collected: Thornbury
Date collected: Unknown

Christopher Challen found this manuscript book “ages ago somewhere in Kington. I don’t actually know where it is now.” A printed label inside the cover reads “Samuel Smith / Thornbury”. We don’t have a date for the book, nor any information about Samuel Smith.

Poor Mary Ann This is not the same tune as Poor Mary Ann in the Greet manuscript.

In the linked abc file this is tune number X:2

With thanks to Christopher Challen for his copy of the manuscript
