The Jolly Pinder of Wakefield

The Jolly Pinder of Wakefield

The Jolly Pinder of Wakefield is Child ballad 124, about Robin Hood. The oldest manuscript was published in 1632 but is believed to based on works at least a century older. A fragmentary version appears in "The Percy Folio".


A jolly pinder boasts how no one, even a baron, makes a trespass at Wakefield. Robin, Will Scarlett, and Little John hear him. The pinder charges them with leaving the road and going among the corn. They fight with swords.

Robin offers to take him into the band.

The pinder gives them some food and says that when Michaelmas comes, he will take his fee from his current master and then join them.
