    I might be mistaken, but I thought I found a song which he wrote under a different name....the lyrics that is.
    That would be very interesting indeed How, if you did. Edwin and Thomas were two of the Maybrick brothers of course. I wonder if there was also a Stephen and an Adam in Michael's life at one time.

          And yes of course it must be admitted that someone other than MM could have used the Edwin Thomas pseudonym. However, I sincerely doubt it.

              An obituary for Michael Maybrick in an Isle of Wight newspaper states that Maybrick wrote the music and lyrics to A Warrior Bold while Weatherly apparently wrote the lyrics to the rest starting with Nancy Lee.

                      A report in the Isle of Wight County Press, August 30th, 1913 (edited by myself, CM):

                      When he wrote his first song, “A Warrior Bold,” he was living in chambers. He had a bad cold and was unable to sing at Wolverhampton, where he had an engagement. While in bed he wrote the words and music of that song and took it to Mr. Arthur Chappell, of Chappell and Co. When the latter wanted to know what it was like he sang it to him.
                      He said he would take five guineas for it, but Mr. Chappell said “What! For an unknown composer?” It ended in his selling his first song for 5s. But there was a royalty attached, and that had gone a long way beyond four figures. Some time after he wrote “Nancy Lee,” he thought in 1878. That was also written when he was in bed, with a bad cold…

                      Mr F. E. Weatherly, who composed the words of “Nancy Lee.” “The Midshipmite,” “The Star of Bethlehem,” “The Holy City,” and other songs for “Stephen Adams” to set to music was formerly a law coach at Oxford. He still writes songs and has a large practice as a barrister on the Western Circuit. .
                      Best Wishes,
                      Cris Malone

                        Thanks again!

                        Not to get too giddy but you could torture this article to get it to point to the time between A Warrior Bold and Nancy Lee as a period when he might have written other lyrics.
