From Source B, p.189 he is called Johnny Peyton. Ford noted it from Hugh O'Beirne C, i, p. 599 is practically the same, except that the tune is in common time and has the title "Juny Peyton'. Neither source attributes the tune to Carolan. This tune may have been composed for one of the children of Tobias Peyton. There is nothing in its style which renders Carolan's authorship of it impossible. ...O'Sullivan 2001 1vol edition p. 278.
