Mary of Argyll The lyrics were written by Charles Jefferys (1807-1865) and thought to be set to an earlier Scottish ballad, although the tune is sometimes attributed to Sydney Nelson (1800-1862). It is not known when it was first published but most likely during the 1850s as a ‘broadside’, a sheet of paper often printed on one side only. It is understood that this particular broadside was printed by James Lindsay of 11 King Street, Glasgow, who operated a printers shop in Glasgow from the 1840s through to 1908. According to popular history, the ‘Bonny Mary’ here refers to 'Highland Mary' (Mary Campbell, 1763-1862), a Scottish dairymaid who was Robert Burns' sweetheart. She died tragically young at the age of 23. The song is also known as ‘Bonnie Mary Of Argyll’.
