D'Ye Ken John Peel in his Coat so Grey by Joseph Simpson Featured 9 Feb 2016 Image

D'Ye Ken John Peel in his Coat so Grey by Joseph Simpson

John Peel (1776? 13 November 1854), English huntsman and the subject of the nineteenth century song D'ye ken John Peel - "ken" meaning to be aware of or to know in some dialects of the North of England. Peel became a moderately well-known figure, owing to the song written about him. Some of the local gentry, after his death, were glad to take on his sons as servants, and the story of Peel romanticized hunting activities for many. He died in 1854 and is buried in the churchyard of St Kentigern's Church, Caldbeck. In 1977 his grave was vandalised by anti-hunting activists. Date: 1937
