The Ballad of Chevy Chase

"A celebrated British Border ballad, which is probably founded on some actual encounter which took place between its heroes, Percy and Douglas, although the incidents mentioned in it are not historical. There are two versions of the ballad bearing the name of "Chevy Chase," an older one, originally called "The Hunting of the Cheviot," and a more modern one." —"Chevy Chase," in Collier's New Encyclopedia, New York: P. F. Collier & Son Co. (1921)
