Perhaps Bryony's tale comes originally from the version in 'Sussex Local Legends' by Jacqueline Simpson (Folklore, Vol. 84, No. 3). This contains a written version of that told by L.N. Candlin, in 1971, from her childhood recollections (c1915), and includes the same unusual word, 'midriff'. Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon
