While Shepherds Watched (Adlestrop)
This carol was collected by Janet Blunt from a Miss Chalmondeley of Adlestrop. This would have been one of the daughters, perhaps Rose Evelyn, of the Hon. and Rev. Henry Pitt Chalmondeley (pronounced "Chumley"), the Rector of Adlestrop. Miss Blunt also collected the same carol from William Walton of adderbury.
