SONGS OUR FATHERS SANG
FAVOURITES OF THE PAST.
Sir,-- I have been much interested in "Old Songs," and wonder if any of your readers know, or have heard
sung, "The Fox Hunt." It is the story, in verse - written at any rate over a century ago - of a fox which
ranged in the Peak Countree, and did much damage to the flocks of sheep:
One hundred and seventy, I’ve heard say,
He either worried or carried away,
Which damage. then, as I am told,
Was said to account to sixty pound.
(It is evident that mutton was then not 2s. 6d. per lb)
The song begins:
Kind muses, now inspire my brain
With all your loud harmonious strain,
That I the huntsman's praise may sing
Whílst craggy rocks and valleys ring,
And we in Bacchus' fountain swim
For to refresh each wearied limb.
These lines to you I do indite,
Who in true harmless sports delight;
Who love when blushing morn doth peep
To ascend the low'ring mountain steep,
For to present the lovely morn,
With echoes of our hounds and horn.
All you who are true hunters' friends,
If you will please for to attend
I’ll sing you the hunting of a fox
Which lately came from Bradfield rocks;
And, Nimrod, for to live once more,
The like you never heard before.
Through lovely woodland cloughs he came.
And thence to Edale, called by name,
Whose shaggy wethers, fat and fair,
Made Reynard many a banquet rare,
Till Fortune turned her wheel about
And sent him into Kinder Scout.
There like a plundering thief he ranged,
His quarters, too, each night he changed:
From Southead to Roych Clough, where he
Still exercised his cruelty
Upon those tender, bleating flocks,
Which fell a prey to this sly fox.
When change of dainties ILeynard Jacks
He goes to Hayfield, where he ransacks
The ponds and rivers, cotes and pens,
For cackling geese, ducks. cocks, and hens,
Till with our hounds this long-tailed elf
We forced him quarters in the "Shelf."
The "Shelf" is a cluster of rocks on the Longdendale side of that high stretch of moor land running back to
Alport and Derwentdale.
Here the "terror" found a "hold," and was for some time master of the situation.
However, the whole countryside - shepherds, sportsmen, and gamekeepers joined in the hunt, took Reynard from
And down amongst the dogs did fling,
Whilst with our shouts the valleys ring.
The capture was evidently celebrated in true style for one verse ends,
"And we drank Bacchus' fountain dry."
I do not know that, either words or music have ever been in print. Probably the tune has been handed down
vocally (I know my great-grandfather sang it a hundred yours ago and my father sang it to me); but there are,
I know, one or two old Yeoman homesteads where are copies of the words. Which of these, if any, is the original
MSS. I do not know: and if any reader could give the information I should be extremely glad.
The song is still occasionally sung at sheep-shearings and shooting parties, though I think it would need the
enthusiasm of a shepherd or sportsman, and the inspiration of the "punch-bowl" (with a fox's foot in it, of course),
to sift through the forty odd verses it contains. A
singer on one occasion lost himself, about, the twentieth verse, began again, and went through - he was not encored.
Sir, - In reply to "Heather copies of the old ballad, "The Derbyshire Fox Chase," were printed in the early
part of last century by H. Dawson, Hall-street, Glossop. In 1884 it was re-printed in the volume of "Peak Sketches"
published by T. A. Pettif, "Advertiser" Office, Glossop. In order to make the narrative more clear and interesting
to perusers of to-day, notes on the localities and persons referred to in the poem are given. It is the editor's
opinion that the poem was written about 1745. It may have been earlier; it could not, have been much later, as the
Joseph Champion mentioned in the fifth verse died June 3, 1746, aged ninety-one years.
Thomas Garside, a grandson of stout-hearted Garside who unearthed the fox, was eighty-four years when he died in
1858. He often remarked that he had heard his grandfather speak of tile matter, and that he had shown him many a time
where he (the grandfather) had drawn the old fox out.
A story is told that a Samuel Dearnaley, clerk at Woodhead Chapel in the time of the Rev. Christopher Howe, used to
be proud of his ability to sing this song of thirty-nine verses in its entirety. On one occasion Mr. Dearnaley was
trolling out the ditty for the inspiriting delight of a jovial company of lovers of the chase. When he got to the
last verse his memory failed him (probably the effects of having quaffed too much of the "nut brown ale"), and the old
enthusiast wanted to have a fresh start and go through it again, greatly to the merriment of the company. But jolly
hunters as they were, the repetition of thirty-nine verses was too much of a good thing even for them, and the old
clerk's remissness of memory was overlooked.
I wonder if any of your readers can give me the words of the song relating to Captain White, of Hayfield, quoted
by Nimrod in his
well-known volume "The Turf, the Chase and the Road," Captain White was the grandson of Dr. Charles White, a founder
of the Manchester Infirmary. Captain White knew no profession but that of sport, from his birth in 1791 to his death
in 1566 at, the age of seventy-five. .Nimrod wrote: "It will be remembered he once played a duet with Mr. Assheton
Smith when every other man was beaten, viz., on that memorable Belvoír day, when hounds ran nineteen miles point black,
as the song said:
White, on the right, sir, 'midst the that flight, sir,
Is quite out of sight of those in the rear.
Mr. John Mortimer, writing in the " City News." July 15, 1882, mentions a song much in vogue many years ago in this
district He says:
"The railway station at Hayfield is interesting to me, inasmuch as waiting once there for a train I heard for the first
and only time a chorus of voices from name neighbouring building singing that quaint Lancashire ballad called "The Frog
and the Crow," which begins:
There was a jolly fat frog lived in the river
And there was a comely black crow lived on
the river brim, oh!
and ends in the singing of it with an extraordinary wild scream of the last "oh" which, to the uninitiated ear, is startling.

re: 'Samuel Dearnaley, clerk at Woodhead Chapel in the time of the Rev. Christopher Howe'
The tithe maps show the Reverend Christopher Howe as the Landowner for Nimble Nook house, garden, meadow & pasture (occupier: John Smith) and the tithe map is dated 1840.
So from this, I am assuming that the relevant Samuel D. is this one. There is also a possibility of it referring to his father.
