213.01 Lefanu (Sheridan's)
265.04 the loftleaved elm Lefanunian

etexts: [1pg] [html chapters] [1861] [1863] [CELT] [reprint]

References have been found in every FW chapter except: I.6, II.4, and III.3. The richest are in II.2 (9), then II.1 (8) and II.3 (4). We can speculate that he added them all at the same time, late in the process of composition. (Contrast his adding all Moore's song titles?)
