CHATHAM HORNPIPE. English, Hornpipe. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Chatham is a very old municipal borough in Kent, on the Medway River. The melody appears in the G. Huddeswell (Leeds, West Yorkshire) manuscript (collected and reprinted by Frank Kidson), and the Joshua Burnett (Worsborough, South Yorkshire) manuscript (dated 1841). The Burnett ms. was discovered in a violin case with an instrument by Martin of London, and contains chiefly cut-time hornpipes (Paul Davenport).
