NOTES [66 words]: Hyder E. Rollins, An Analytical Index to the Ballad-Entries (1557-1709) In the Register of the Company of Stationers of London, 1924 (I use the 1967 Tradition Press reprint with a new Foreword by Leslie Shepard), p. 212, #2450, says that a song called "The sinners redemption" was registered March 26, 1656 by Jno. Wright. Rollins thinks it is this, but I don't know how it could be proved. - RBW
