*States ; "Mr. Brown (Hist. of Notts) appears to be under the impression that the Plough Monday play is a thing of the past, but it was acted as late as Jan.1890 by the Cropwell and Tithby 'Plough Bullocks', and an acc. of it sent to the Revue des Traditions Populaires by a Nottinghamshire member of that society who witnessed the performance at a neighbouring house"

Taken from a card in the W.E.Doubleday Index. This adds at the end "(Mrs. Chaworth-Musters, 1892)". More likely it was H.G.M.Murray-Aynsley (1889).
