Feast, Edward


Collection date: Apr 1908

Area: Somerset - Bridgwater Surrounds

Edward Feast at Cannington: age 65, 2 songs inc 'In Amsterdam' (We'll go no more a roving) sea shanty FT1619) on 8 Apr 1908: No clues in field notebooks and no biographical details available. If Edward Feast was in fact a sailor, there's an intriguing entry in the 1881 census for Essex (RG11/1782 f76 p11) listing 'Edward B Feast, age 39, single, private in the Royal Marine Light Infantry, aboard HMS Penelope'. This would be the right age bracket. This gave Edward's place of birth as St Agnes Finsbury, Middx. No further records at the moment.
