Bobby Shaftoe

Robert Shafto (sometimes spelt Shaftoe) was an 18th Century British Member of Parliament (MP) and beau who was the likeliest subject of a famous North East English folk song and nursery rhyme Bobby Shafto.

Bobby Shafto's gone to sea,
Silver buckles on his knee;
He'll come back and marry me,
Bonny Bobby Shafto!

Bobby Shafto's bright and fair,
Combing down his yellow hair;
He's my love for evermair,
Bonny Bobby Shafto!
