London Waits Song from Pills to Purge Melancholy (1719)
I think we’re on strong ground to reckon The Music is the waits – playing Cuckolds all arow. James [Dr James Merryweather].
Cuckold’s Point. Also known as Cuckold’s Haven; on the Surrey bank of the Thames at the n. end of Limehouse Reach; said to derive its name from the story of a miller of Charlton, Kent, who was cuckolded there by King John.
