Catherine Hutton et al. in Redcar - in the middle of 1811

from The Life of William Hutton, F.A.S.S. … written by Himself, and published by his daughter, Catherine Hutton, page 296:

The last evening of our stay at Redcar, the party happened to be small, and was composed of such as, if this meet their eye, will not be displeased at my calling them our friends. My Father was again the first person of the company. He desired me to sing the wife’s part of Burns’s song of My spouse, Nancy, and, at the age of eighty-eight, he sung that of the husband.
