This wassail song was originally collected in January 1977 by Gwilym Davies from 76 year-old Lem Hayward of Arlingham. Subsequently, Mike Yates and Gwilym rerecorded Lem at his home. Later Gwilym and Carol Davies collected a different version from Arlingham from Pat Turner. The recording presented here is the later one that later recording as the sound quality is better, but the transcription of the song is based on the first recording. The custom was kept up until the Second World War in Arlingham, where at about 8 pm on New Year’s Eve, a party some twenty strong would set off from Arlingham and call at Framilode, Saul, and Frampton Court. They carried a six-foot bough decorated with tinsel and cards, and collected money in a tin.
