This is not a Welsh folk‐song, as claimed in many books of such songs, but appears to be the comp. of Dibdin. He pubd. it in 1785, when it was sung in his Drury Lane opera Liberty Hall, and it appeared many times subsequently in vols. of his songs, not figuring in any of the numerous Welsh colls. before 1844.
