JACK WARREL'S HORNPIPE. English, "Old" or Triple Hornpipe (triple time). C Major. Standard tuning. ABCDEFGHIJKLMN. From Thomas Marsden's A Collection of Original Lancashire Hornpipes, Old and New. Containing Divisions upon each (London, 1705, pp. 10-11); the tune is a set of eight variations on the same theme as Marsden's "Old Haile Hornpipe." The book was sold out of Henry Playford's music shop at the Temple Change, priced at one shilling. William Vickers' "Four Bare Legs Together" is said to be a derivative tune.
