DUCHESS OF BUCCLEUCH'S MINUET. AKA and see "Miss Jeanie Maxwell's Minuet." Scottish, Minuet. The alternate name is the original, and was changed to the Duchess title when Ms. Maxwell married. As Johnson (1983) points out, a frequently played melody was a gentle way to help keep a dedicatee in the public eye, and the name change would communicate her change in status to society.
