    Fiddler - provided old tunes to Sabine Baring-Gould 
    • This was the only elderly William Andrew(s) living in Sheepstor at the time of the 1891 census, i.e. the only one who I think could have been the William Andrew(s) who was visted by Sabine Baring-Gould in 1890 and from whom Sabine Baring-Gould and his collaborator Frederick Bussell collected old tunes in 1892.  

      An account of the encounter between William and Baring-Gould can be found on this page, which also has a link to the score for perhaps the best known of William Andrew's tunes, "Adam the Poacher".
      An excerpt from "Adam the Poacher" can be heard here (the second tune).
      There is more information, including about a book of William's tunes, on the Folkopedia website.
