CHESHIRE ROUND [2], A. AKA and see "Mr. Preston's Hornpipe (2)." English, "Old" or Triple Hornpipe (3/2 time). C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCC. A different tune than "Cheshire Rounds (1)." The melody was published in Walsh's third collection of Lancashire tunes (Lancashire Jiggs, Hornpipes, Joaks, etc.) around the year 1731. John Offord printed the tune under the title "Mr. Preston's Hornpipe (2)," noting the similarity with Thomas Marsden's "Mr. Preston's Hornpipe (1)", printed in 1705 for Marsden by London music publisher Henry Playford. Compare "Cheshire Round [2]" also with "Jock Wilson's Ball."
