Ballad singer and minor character from the play Bartholomew Fair by Ben Jonson, which premiered in 1614.

Nightingale: Hey,

Now the Fair’s a filling!

O for a tune to startle

The birds o’ the booths here billing,

Yearly with old saint Bartle!

The drunkards they are wading.

The punks and chapmen trading ;

Who’d see the Fair without his lading ?

Buy any ballads, new ballads ?
