6.The texts of these two plays [Broadwell and Leamington Hastings] are identical, and the original source, E. Isham, the same in both cases. The text in Ordish Coll. is labelled Leamington Hastings, and that in Gatty (1948), Broadwell. A separate note in Ordish Coll. refers to a Broadwell play, but no text or any other detail is given. Under the circumstances therefore, we have given both locations, but whether or not one team served both, or two separate teams used the same text, it is now impossible to say.
Pt.1 change: Delete entirely [Leamington Hastings]. The footnote is misleading. There is no text in Ordish Coll., but Mrs. Eden mentions that she has the text, twice saying 'Leamington Hastings' and once 'Broadwell in the parish of Leamington Hastings'. There is another example of her confusion when she lists a text under both the village and the parish. Ordish listed this text as Broadwell in a report (unpublished in Ordish Coll.) to the Folklore Society. It is presumably this text from the Eden collection which was printed in Gatty (1948) as Broadwell, but the Eden MSS seem to have been lost since that publication. There is no sound evidence for a Leamington Hastings performance, and none at all for a text.
