LADY MILDMAY'S WALTZ. English, Waltz. A Major ('A' and 'B' parts) & A Minor ('C' and 'D' parts). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCCDD. The title perhaps refers to Jane Mildmay (c. 1765-1857), who married Sir Henry Paulet St. John-Mildmay in 1786, or perhaps one of her daughters. She apparently was a heiress, for Henry added the name Mildmay to his own in 1790. Lady Jane evidently was musical, for there is a portrait of her dating from 1785, seated playing the harp.
