NOTES: GreigDuncan4 and Roud split "Jean Chivas" from "Bell Hendry" though its first verse is close to GreigDuncan4 728D and its fragmentary verse is close to two lines of GreigDuncan4 728C. The name, obviously, is changed from Bell Hendry to Jean Chivas. Locations are changed respectively from Fraserburgh and Marnin Fair to Blackton and Porter Fair. - BS
