An apparently satirical Nottinghamshire slip song, perhaps produced during an enclosure dispute (‘Have BURGESS’s the Time forgot, When Worshipper’s of Mammon; Combined to seize that happy Spot, We hold as RIGHT of Common?’), which groups the names of several local worthies (such as Mayors Hawksley and Hunt) ‘as An Auctioneer’s old Books, Waste Paper, Rotten Leather’.
