Thanks - good to know the derivation.
For info, here are a couple of links to playbills that show the play.
Same ones on the BL viewer:
Dover spelled Dovor! A surprising mistake.
johnjo and again!
johnjo This isn't a typo, I've researched my family history in Kent and Dovor/Dover appear to be interchangeable, I've seen both being used on official documents in the area until at least the mid-19th century.
Looks like it might have been the accepted spelling.
Search for dovor at http://blplaybills.org and there are lots of playbills over a many years with that spelling.
@johnjo it's surprising, isn't it! I've also seen variations of Devonport on the playbills.
That is really interesting. It stood out as most examples are spelled Dover. I have learned something today!
christian May it be "Husdandy"?
martinmaryska sorry for late reply: yes! that could make sense - good term!
An R too far!
Not sure if screen shots work....
johnjo image attachments aren't this forum software's best features, that's for sure! Nice typo though!
Not a good look to get the title wrong. Paired Off!
