'Chance Child' | 11-Aug-05

I wonder who thi daddy wor.
'Appen now we'll never know
Tinker, tailor, soldier who?
Just copped on passing through.
Hed his fling in't summer grass
And left a chance child wi' a lass.

Do you know this poem? Do you have any clues to help us find it?


I know nothing of the quote, but it is clearly 'northern' looking. the word 'hed' sounds somewhat Black Country in origin.
I am currrently researching my family tree, and in the Kinsgsley (Staffordshire) Parish Registers, there are MANY 'chance child' baptisms in the 17th and 18th centuries.
