The "little boy" who fell can't be Tom Edwards who is now an adult. Does he refer to male child servants anywhere else?

"Captain Cooke and his two boys did sing some Italian songs, which I must in a word say I think was fully the best musique that I ever yet heard in all my life"

Have we any idea even perhaps what type of songs these might have been? I guess we could start by excluding any type of music that Samuel has elsewhere expressed a dislike of.
