Thanks for the incentive Trevor (M.o.U)

That tale of the green-skinned (foreign/alien) children is given
at:

http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/celt/tfm/tfm107.htm

from Ralph (Abbot of Coggeshall 1207 - 1218) and added to by
William of Newbridge (another monk?) who says the girl survived
and married a local man - so fairly human-like at least (any
offspring?).

But, as you say, we have a now much older "green man" to check
out.

A slightly frustrating reference is at:

http://www.pantheon.org/areas/folklore/folklore/articles.html?/articles/g/green_man.html

"A legendary pagan deity"

But now the real problem is at:

http://www.perceptions.couk.com/talltales.txt

which shows how oral (and written) legends and records were
erased or corrupted by christian priest and monks, who had a
monopoly of literacy for several hundred years.

However, there's some large Keltic (Irish) folk tale books in
the piles somewhere - maybe get back to you in a month (or year)
or so.

Cheers,

Ray D
