BUFFELLEER'S MARCH. English, March (whole time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. The tune is contained in the large 1840 music manuscript collection of multi-instrumentalist John Rook, or Waverton, neart Wigton, Cumbria. The title is curious--the Dutch word buffelleer translates as the equally curious 'buffaloer' in English. Perhaps it was some sort of a nickname for the Buffs, a British regiment.
