The Green Wedding is a fine and ancient ballad. The beautiful and much courted bride, when she is named at all in the various versions, was Katherine Jaffrey. Her love is sometimes named Lochinvar. Whatever the identities and details of this story, from the early 13th century onwards, there were many known abductions of the bride on her wedding day – not always with her consent – and our tale is likely to be true.
