LADY ANN HAMILTON('S RANT). AKA - "Lady Hambleton," "Lady Ann Hambleton's Rant." AKA and see "Lady Gig," "Lady Home's Jig" "Lady Jean Hume's Reel." Scottish, English; Jig. England, Northumberland. C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Seattle (1987) thinks William Vickers' (1770) version of the melody remarkably similar to "Cock Up Your Beaver." Gow prints the tune as "Lady Home's Jig," while Bremner (c. 1757) prints it as "Lady Jean Hume's Reel," as does the earliest source, David Young (1734) in his Drummond Castle Manuscript. The jig was also printed in London by publisher John Johnson in Wright's Compleat Collection of celebrated country Dances, vol. 2 (1742, p. 15). See also Robert Riddell's similarly-titled "Lady Ann Hamilton's Reel," which, despite the title is a jig, albeit a different one than Vickers'.
