William Holland in Kilve - 1 February, 1810

from Paupers and pig killers / William Holland, page 193:

After supper I gave 'em some Welsh Penillion and Mr Harford copied some things from my mouth for he is very curious and has a choice collection of many things.  He took the etymology of Down Heigh Derry Down from the Welsh Druidical Chorus of Hai Down yr Derri Dano - Ho Come under the Oaken Trees.
