Can anyone tell me the meaning of 'Not in my Baileywick'?

Posted by Ron on February 22, 2000

The spelling might be incorrect, but I've tried to spell it as its read. People seem to use it as a way of indicating something is not on their patch, or not within their responsibility. I'm not sure if it does have a connection to something or where it originated from. Can anyone help please.
