Walter Lesly

Walter Lesly

"Walter Lesly" is Child ballad 296.


Walter Lesly asks a lady to come to Conland. Then his kinsmen, led by Geordy Lesly, carry her off. A wedding feast is ready, and they are put in bed together. When he is asleep, she gets up, dresses, and runs off, swearing to deal no more with him.

It concludes with the observation that he was not interested in either her looks or her noble blood, but only her money.
