(MINICRIB, Dance Crib compiled by Charles Upton, Deeside Caledonian Society, and his successors)
The title of this dance, The Carl Cam' Ower The Croft, comes from The Carle He Cam' Ower The Craft - Song from Ramsay's Tea-Table Miscellany and an older version of the same song given in Thomson's Orpheus Caledonius, published in 1725.
The carle he cam' ower the craft,
Wi' his beard new-shaven;
He looked at me as he'd been daft,-
The carle trowed that I wad ha'e him.
The meaning of Carl (and the many derivatives e.g. Carle, Karl, Cairl, etc.) is a common man from the lower classes, often associated with peasant farming.
A croft is a fenced or enclosed area of land, usually small and arable with a crofter's dwelling thereon. A crofter is one who has tenure and use of the land.
The word croft is West Germanic in etymology, and is now most familiar in Scotland, most crofts being in the Scottish Highlands and Islands area.
