' THE LASS OF RICHMOND HILL '
A Comedy of Yorkshire, with Music. Written by MAX KESTER
EVERY listener has, at least once, heard the old song 'The Lass of Richmond Hill. " but few realize that it is not the Richmond in Surrey which is meant, but the old town in the North Riding of Yorkshire. The lass of Richmond Hill was a real person : her name was Frances
I'Anson, and the house where she lived still stands at the top of Frenchgate, Richmond.
Our sketch this evening attempts to show how this old song came to be written.
