GREAT EASTERN (HORNPIPE). AKA and see "Belfast Hornpipe (1)," "Sweep's Hornpipe (1)," "Millicent's Hornpipe," "Millicen's Favourite." The title may or may not refer to the Great Eastern, one of three great transatlantic steamships designed by Isambad Kingdom Brunel (whose father was Sir Marc Isambard Brunel, 1769-1849, a French-born engineer resident in England after the Revolution who constructed the first tunnel under the Thames, still in use today as part of the London Underground). It may also refer to a region (of the United States, for example).
