Williams / others notes
Alfred Williams gives two names to the song, Betsy of the moor. Mrs Emily Freeman and Mrs E. Newman, Ampney Crucis. Emily Freeman is traced living in Ampney Crucis over a long period of time. In 1911 an Esther Newman, place of birth, Ampney Crucis, c. 1842, age, 69, is living in the household of Ernest Townsend, Church of England clergyman in Norfolk, as she was in 1901, so is unlikely to be the source of the song.
