BAILIFF'S DAUGHTER, THE. AKA and see "Jolly Pinder (The)," "Baily's Daughter of Islington (The)." English, Air (4/4 time). G Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. The song appears in the ballad opera The Jovial Crew (1731). The air appears to be considerably older, however, and appears in a lute MS found by Dr. Rimbault.

There was a youth, and a well-belov'd youth,
And he was a Squire's son;
He loved the bailiff's daughter dear,
That lived in Islington.
