LADY ANN MAITLAND. Scottish, Reel. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. The melody appears in Malcolm MacDonald's (Dunkeld) 2nd Collection (1789), dedicated to the Earl of Breadalbane. The title perhaps refers to Lady Isabel Anne Maitland (1772-1858), who was one of the twelve children of James Maitland, 7th Earl of Lauderdale, and sister to James Maitland, the 8th Earl of Lauderdale (who, in July 1792, fought a bloodless duel with Benedict Arnold after impugning Arnold's honour in the House of Lords). In 1793 she married Francis Dashwood Esq., and they had two children.
