The pinder of Wakefield, George a Green, I try'd a sommers day. Yet he nor i were victors made Nor victor'd went away. For fryer Tuck, so stout and young. My courage could appall. She is an important character, however, in the two old plays of The death and downfall of Robert earl of Huntington, written before , and is frequently mentioned by dramatic or other writers about that period.
The morris dance, so famous of old time, was as is elsewhere noticed com- posed of the following constituent characters : Robin Hood, Little John, frier Tuck, and maid Marian. In the First part of K. Henry IV. Falstaft' says to the hostess, — " There's no more faith in thee than in a stew'd pnine ; nor no more truth in thee than in a drawn fox ; and for womanhood, maid Marian may be the deputy's wife of the ward to thee : " upon which Dr. Johnson observes, that " Maid Marian is a man dressed like a woman, who attends the dancers of the morris.
Steevens, too, after citing the old play of The downfall of Robert earl of Huntington, , to prove "that maid Marian was originally a name assumed by Matilda, the daughter of Robert lord Fitzwater, while Robin Hood remained in a state of outlawry," observes, that " Shakspeare speaks of maid Marian in her degraded state, when she was represented by a strumpet or a clown : " and refers to figure 2 in the plate at the end of the play, with Mr. Toilets observations on it. The widow, in sir W.
Warton quotes an old piece, entitled " Old Meg of Herefordshire for a maid Marian, and Hereford town for a morris-dance : or 12 morris-dancers in Here- fordshire of years old," London, , quarto: which is dedicated, he says, to one Hall, a celebrated tabourer in that coimtry. As for the passage he produces, it seems nothing to the purpose ; as, in the first place, it is apparently not " ancient;" and, in the second, it is apparently not from a " song of Robin Hood.

See Madoxes History of the Exchequer, Edward the Confessor, which he granted to the abbot of Ramsey, that the abbot of Ramsey should give to the abbot and convent of Pcterburgh AOW eeles in the time of Lent, and in consideration thereof the abbot of Peterburgh should give to the abbot of Ramsey as much freestone from his pittsin Bcrnack, and as much ragstono from his pitts in Peterburgh as he should need.
Nor did the abbot of Peterburgh from these pits furnish only that but other abbies also, as that of St. Edmimds-Bury : in memory whereof there arc two long stones yet standing upon a balk in Castor-field, near unto Gun wade- ferry; which erroneous tradition hath given out to be draughts of arrows from Alwalton church-yard thither; the one of Robin Hood, and the other of Little John ; but the truth is, they were set up for witnesses, that the cariiages of stone from Uernack to Gunwade-ferry, to be conveyed to S.
Edmunds-Bury, might pass that Avay without paying toll ; and in some old terrars they are called S. Edmunds stones. These stones are nicked in theii- tops after tho manner of arrows, probably enough in memory of S. Edmund, M-ho was shot to death with arrows by the Danes. Walker observes, " the doctor not only evinces his credulity, but displays his ignorance of archery; for the ingenious and Iciirned 3Ir.

The above ingenious writers een. See also the old song, printed in the appendix, No. Such was the humane policy uf our enlightened ancestors! The chief subjects of our heros conversation are supposed, by a poetical genius of the 16th century, to have been the com- mendation of a forest-life, and the ingratitude of mankind.
Those took from rich to give the poore,and manned Robin Hood. He fed them well, and lodg'd them safe in pleasant caves and bowers, Oft saying to his merry men, What juster life than ours? Here use we tallents that abroad the chm-les abuse or hide, Their coffers excrements, and yeat for common wants denide. Yea even the best that betterd them heard but aloofe our mones. And redily the churles could prie and prate of our amis, Forgetfull of their owne,. Jly friendst herefore shall finde me true, but I will trust f no frend. J Not one I knewe that wisht me ill, nor any workt me well , A To lose, lacke, live, time, f rends, in yncke, an hell, an I hell, an hell!
It is not improbable, at the same time, that they miglit have tolerably comfortable habitations erected in the woods. Archery, which our hero and liis companions appear to have carryed to a state of perfection, continued to be cultivated for some ages after their time, down, indeed, to that of Henry VIII.
