*Mummers [Hobby Horse play, etc., in North Notts.]
*Newark Advertiser, *18th Jan.1871
"A party of mummers visited the towns & villages of North Notts during the past fortnight, and highly diverted the inhabitants by their dancing, singing of old songs, & the play of the Hobby Horse. The latter play was in existence in the days of the Plantagenets, & probably the song & tune which they sang, viz 'When Joan's ale was new.'"
