Notes
This is from a section of the Bathe Clissold Index which states that it is:

'A list of songs known to have been noted by Williams - vide his own 'List of songs copied' [from his notebooks] - the manuscripts of which are no longer extant. [The original owners of Williams' manuscripts destroyed a number of song texts thinking they were on no use.]

I have continued the numbering sequence adopted by Bathe Clissold to encompass these songs.

This is included for the sake of completeness.
