There is also a broadside ballad index by Steve Roud, in England, which is not yet comparable to this one for ballads prior to 1700, but has many thousands of 18th and 19th century ballads, including later reprints of many here. He also has a comparable index of folksongs. Roud's indices are at present available only directly from him on floppy disks, and require the user to furnish his or her own database software. The format of the disks is such that they may be easily loaded into most popular PC software systems. Steve may be contacted via e-mail at
He is soon to move, but can be contacted by post through the librarian at Cecil Sharp House of the EFDSS as: c/o Malcolm Taylor/ Vaughan Williams Library/ 2 Regents Park Rd./ London NW1 7AY.

This index unfortunately was not designed, it just grew. In 1987 The Pepys Ballads was published in facsimile in five volumes, but without an Index. I got very tired of thumbing through the volumes to relocate a text in which I had some interest, so decided to make a rudimentary Index. After I had it, I though I might as well throw in the Wood and Manchester collections for which I had made a contents list, and also the BL 'Book of Fortune' collection which I had seen many years earlier. After I had done that it seemed I might has well put in everything else that I could find reasonably easy, and here it is. In the interest of getting the maximum information in the least file space is I decided to put the titles of books cited in italics, but not to waste file space but putting the codes I use for these in italics. The file is in ASCII, so it can be read into almost any word processor, or a Web browser, and one can quickly search on key words with a SEARCH of FIND command, for these key words any place in the file, opening line, title, tune direction, etc. The biggest difficulty is in figuring out all the ways a word could be spelled in earlier centuries.

While 17th century broadside ballads is the main focus of this index, some few ballads in The Pepys, Roxburghe and Crawford collections are of the 16th century, or are reissues of 16th century ballads, and a number of ballads in the Roxburghe and Crawford collections are of the 18th century. Carol R. Livingston's British Broadside Ballads of the Sixteenth Century (hereafter CLB) indexes all of the extant printed sheets of the 16th century, and I have listed only those which were later reprinted, or which supplied a tune for a later ballad, or are in the collections of mostly 17th century ballads covered here. I have added contents of three major reprinted MS collections of 16th century broadside ballads to help complete coverage of the 16th century.

I have also included the 18th century garlands in the Roxburghe and Crawford Collections. C. M. Simpson, in The British Broadside Ballad and Its Music , 1966, (hereafter BBBM) notes a number of other broadside ballads in obscure collections, publications and in manuscripts. His manuscript coverage is by no means complete.

In the index here are also cited manuscript copies of several songs that were expanded into broadside ballads not previously known to be derived from earlier songs, e.g. "Frank[l]in is fled away." Also included are some songs that survive only in later copies, but for which there is some evidence that some version of it was at one time on a broadside ballad, now lost,. e.g. "Nichol o Cod."

Simpson obviously made a fairly complete index of broadside ballads, but did not publish such, and some collections are now published that were not published at the time of publication of his work. He did not mention any broadside ballads whose tunes he couldn't discover, and this is a sizeable number. Most of the songs he cites in MS may now be seen in microfilm copies of the MSS, and many of these songs may also be found in other MSS which he did not cite. I have not referenced the tunes to those in Simpson's BBBM, since his work is so well indexed. I have cross referenced Simpson's tune title usually only in the few cases where a tune title cannot be found in his index.

Many ballads are noted as Child ballads, and many more as traditional, and those noted in the U.S. are cited by the code given by G. M. Laws, Jr, American Balladry from British Broadsides, 1957, but with space between letter and # deleted, so SEARCH or FIND command in a word processor will not be defeated by having the letter on one line and number on another. (In retrospect I should have done this for AI #'s, and maybe a few other things. Some ballads traditional in the British Isles are also noted, but these notations are still being worked on.

I have skipped many of the political pieces given by Ebsworth in vols. 4 and 5 of Roxburghe Ballads, in Bagford Ballads, and a number of those in the Crawford collection, as these cite no tunes and are probably in most cases poems, not songs. I have also skipped some political pieces and satirical social commentaries that are songs in Roxburghe Ballads.

Robin Hood ballads are listed in a separate group following the main index.

Other reprints of broadside ballads

PG-Hyder E. Rollins, A Pepysian Garland, Cambridge, The University Press, 1922 (reprinted, 1971) Eighty broadside ballads, one from Rawlinson, one from Manchester and five from Wood's collections, the rest being from Pepys.

PA-H.E. Rollins, Pack of Autolycus, 1927, reprinted 1969. Forty broadside ballads selected from Wood, Manchester, Douce, Rawlinson, and Pepys collections.

CP-H. E. Rollins, Cavalier and Puritan, New York, New York University Press, 1923. Seventy five broadside ballads from Manchester, 'Book of Fortune' (BL C.20.f.14), Thomason, and Lutrell collections, with several from the 'newspapers' of the Commonwealth period.

CB-John Ashton, A Century of Ballads. Ashton was quick to expurgate and otherwise delete verses. Most here, but not all, are from the Roxburghe and Bagford collections.

HWS-John Ashton, Humour, Wit, and Satire of the Seventeenth Century. A miscellany which reprints several broadside ballads, most, if not all, from the Roxburghe collection.

-- Not included are Charles H. Firth's An American Garland, and Naval Songs and Ballads. I have neither of these, and that, and not a lack of respect for Firth's excellent scholarship, is why they are lacking. The same for H. E. Rollins, The Pepys Ballads

C. Hindley also published a two volume selection from the Roxburghe collection.

J. P. Collier published A Book of Roxburghe Ballads, 1847, mostly, but not all, from the Roxburghe collection. This latter was apparently finished a few years before it was published, and except for one fanciful title, it seems accurate. But by 1847 Collier was engaged in writing his forgeries of old songs, announced at the beginning of vol. II of his Extracts from the Registers of the Stationers Company, 1849. The manuscript into which he copied his songs in now called the 'Joseph Hall Commonplace Book', Folger Shakespeare MS V.a. 339. Collier's forgeries were detected by Giles Dawson, former curator of MSS at the Folger Lib. and an account published in a technical article in 1971, but without the listing of the forged songs. Some have become rather wide spread, i.e., "The King's Hunt is up" was not long ago newly recorded as a 16th century song.

Works not indexed except a few primarily for purposes of cross reference with other texts.

OEB- H. E. Rollins, Old English Ballads, 1920, those for which there is evidence that they were to be sung, i.e., are not poems, are included here.

C79- A Collection of Seventy-Nine Black-Letter Ballads and Broadsides, 1867, and 2nd. issue, 1870. Cited by page. No editor named. Published by Joseph Lilly, and most often referred to under his name, but the collection was owned at that time by George Daniels and is sometimes referred to as 'Daniels'. A post card from J. O. Halliwell, in answer to a query, is in the Folger Shakespeare Library copy of the 1867 issue. In it J. O. Halliwell states that he had written the notes, and Tho. Wright had written the Introduction. Contents indexed in CLB.

CBB-Herbert Collman, Ballads and Broadsides chiefly of the Elizabethan Period, 1812, rptd. 1971. Collection that is now in Huntington Library in California. Contents indexed in CLB

LMC- Robert Lemon, Catalogue of a Collection of Printed Broadsides in the Possession of the Society of Antiquaries of London, 1866. This reprints a few of the broadsides cataloged. Contents indexed in CLB

Note 1: The = sign below means issues by same publisher, usually, but not necessarily, the ballads are from the same press run. [no imprint] may mean that the ballad was issued without a publisher's imprint, or, that it has subsequently been cut off. The latter is especially the case for many in the Roxburghe collection.

Note 2: Although the common terminology is that the imprints were of ballad printers, the ballads were actually often printed by others, and the imprints should actually be termed that of the publishers. The actual typesetting and printing were often contracted out to other printers. A. M. (Augustine Mathews), 1630's, did both. Martin Parsons and John Lock printed, but did not publish ballads.

Abreviations for publishers:

Most dates from C. Blagden, 'Notes on the Ballad Market in the Second Half of the Seventeenth Century', Studies in Bibliography, VI, 1954 (which contains much other valuable information also). I have made slight revisions in places, from noting imprints not seen by Blagden. Blagden noted only one John Clarke, this is one in 'the company,' who published at the Golden Lyon and at the Bible and Harp. A John Clark, Jr. appears, c 1680 at the Horseshoe in West Smithfield but published only a few ballads.

Note: Francis Coles spelled name Coules in 1620's and in the 1630's it becomes Cowles and Coles.

'The company'

CWVG-Coles, J. Wright (II), Vere, and Gilbertson 1655-58

CVWC-Coles, Vere, Wright and Clarke, 1674-9 [A number of ballads entered by this partnership on July 1, 1678 are ones previously published by Richard Burton]

CVWCTP- F. Coles, T. Vere, J. Wright (III), Clark, W. Thackeray and T. Passinger, 1679- 81 [Cole's name didn't dissappear immediately on his death by Sept. 1680, and is found from Nov. 1680 (ZN127|) to as late as May, 1681 (ZN1513|).

M. Coles, VWCTP with Mary Coles at beginning or end, 1681 The initial M. of Coles widow, Mary, appears on many, especially in the Pepys Collection, which Blagden did not examine, and are evidently to be dated 1681. In fact, she survived Vere, (see next entry) so Blagden's hypothetical imprint Vere, Wright, Clarke, Thackeray and Passinger is void, and should be replaced with the following:

WCTP, and M. Coles, mid 1681-early 1682? ZN31, ZN589, ZN2279

WCTP-J. Wright (III), J. Clarke, Thackeray and T. Passinger, 1682-4

P. Brooksby in West Smithfield, July 1683, (ZN2249, ZN3123) at Pye-Corner by the end of 1684, (ZN999)

BDBB: Brooksby, Deacon, Blare, and Back, This company seems to have started in 1690. Brooksby alone published ZN1114 in June of 1690, but in July BDBB published ZN430 and ZN1623. All of the partners, however, published separately in succeeding years, as well as in the partnership. Brooksby seems to disappear about 1696, and was succeeded for a very short period by his widow, E. Brooksby, but I can't guarantee this date. B[ridgit]. Deacon had succeeded her husband by 1702.

Entering or registering of broadside ballads was done at the office of the Stationers' Company, for the primary purpose of copyright protection. Licensing, at times when this was in effect, was done at the Office of Revels in Whitehall for the purpose of political censorship. Licensing records may still be extant, but a personal communication of about 1970 indicated that the Office of Revels accounts were rolled and tied in bundles, and stored, unorganized, in paste-board boxes at that time. Ballad printers were not always conscientious in doing either, and were often untruthful about entry statements. Francis Grove last entered a ballad in the Stationers' Register on May, 29, 1658, (ZN3250) but published many subsequently with the statement 'Licensed and Entered according to Order.'

Usual form of licensing statement under Roger L'Strange was, c 1662-1685, 'With Allowance', but licensing statements are rather rare in this period. 'This may be Printed. R. L. S.' seems to have been used only from June 5, 1685, to the end of his term. L'Strange's term as licenser lasted into at least Nov. 1685. 'Licensed according to Order" was after Richard Pocock's term, 1689-96? Be careful; some reissues copied licensing statements from earlier issues. Sara Tyus, widow of Charles, is earliest to use 'With Allowance', and once used 'With privilege', ZN340.

Stationers' Register entry dates are here added complete for 17th century broadside ballads, from H. E. Rollins' AI = Analytical Index to the Ballad Entries. AI numbers as well as dates are given because titles sometime change, and also some ballads were entered only by first line. Don't trust the bald statement "Entered in xxxx"; there are many entries whose identification with a particular broadside ballad are questionable, but those by Rollins are usually good. With AI # quoted, or full entry quoted, you can satisfy yourself.

Form of index entries:

Entries are nominally; opening line, or two/ ZNnumber code| Short title/ Tune or tunes indicated/ author or initials, if any/ licensing and|or entry statements if any/ Source of collection or reprint of collection copy: Publisher or publishers code/ repeat of last for other copies. In brackets are listed other copies for which I have no information on one or more of the previous items. Significantly different opening or title or tune is preceded by // with quotation of the item that is different. Stationers' Register entries, misc. notes, also in brackets at the end.

This scheme breaks down with ballads from manuscripts, because rarely did a MS compiler indicate the printer, and most often there is no indication of a tune, although in rare cases the tune was copied into the MS. Often the title is not that from a broadside issue.

Entries are coded with a number, n, prefixed by ZN, ZNn and a terminator | (more about terminator below), to give ZNn|, and cross references to this entry are same without the Z prefix, Nn|. SEARCH or FIND command with ZNn| finds entry only. With N, but without Z, prefix you will get entry (ZNn|) and any cross references (Nn|) to it using SEARCH. <space>Nn| will leave out the main entry, ZNn|, but will find any cross references to it. Because most numbers were assigned in alphabetical order after about 3200 entries, you will usually not have many problems without terminator in this file as it now stands, but with, say a backwards search for ZN260 if you are way down the file, you will stop at ZN2609, ZN2608, etc. The terminator makes the number unambiguous for the SEARCH command.

It may be the following: Quite similar is a song 'Conscience, with brooms at her back, singeth as folleth:' in R. W.'s play The Three Ladies of London, 1584. Burden is, 'New brooms, green Brooms, will you buy any, Come, maidens, come quickly, let me take a penny.' This appears may be related to a ballad entered on July 25, 1592, 'Conscience Crye to all estates in sellinge of broom'. AI 377. Another song in The Three Ladies of London, 'The Countrey hath no peare,' has been identified by Rollins (with certainty) as an entry of Sept. 4, 1564. AI 403. Thus it isn't unreasonable that the song the play was an old one, but precise connection with that in RP is still lacking]

A fragment of what was undoubtably a mid-16th century version is in Pamelia, p. 37, 1609. "Malkin was a country maid, a country maid tricke and trim, tricke and trim as she might be, she would needes to the Court shee said to sell milke and firmenty." Rollins, AI 1693, pointed out this as from original in connection with "Mawken was a Counttry mayde moralysed", entered in 1563/4. Strangely, Rollins did not connect it with the song here. An early 18th century condensed version is called "Farmer's Daughter of Merry Wakefield," whose tune is in Merry Musician, I, 1716 and on single sheet issues from c 1705.
