Excerpt from Lays and Legends of Cheshire: With Other Poems and Ballads
Few of the following Ballads were written during visits to Lyme in the lifetime of the late Mr. Legh, and at the suggestion of Mrs. Legh, and appeared in a small volume printed in 1861, entitled Sir Percy... Legh. Two of them, with some slight alterations, were included in the Ballads and Legends of Cheshire, collected by the late Colonel Egerton Leigh, and published in 1867, So many of the old houses in the two counties palatine have disappeared within the last half century, and so many of the legends and traditions connected with them have been lost, that it is desirable the latter, whenever discovered, should receive either in prose or verse some form calculated to give them permanency. Those to which the author has endeavoured to give a metrical form have been communicated to him by friends in possession of the houses to which they relate, or who were in some other way connected with them.
