[Note 056.4] "our poor devoted bark" occurs in the first verse of The Bay of Biscay (Roud 24928) written by Andrew Cherry (1762-1812) an Irish actor and writer. [Ref: http://ingeb.org/songs/loudroar.html] The British Library has a copy of the song which it dates to c1835. [General Reference Collection 11630.f.7.(10.)] so the song may well have been popular soon after.
