LANCASTER HORNPIPE [1]. AKA and see "Cooper's Hornpipe," "Exciseman's Hornpipe (The)," "Fox in the Dumps (The)," "Maiden Hornpipe," "Smith's Hornpipe (8)," "Swan's Hornpipe." English, Hornpipe. North-West England. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The hornpipe appears in the 1850 folio of the music manuscript collection of Lake District musician William Irwin (1822-1889). The name Lancaster is derived from the Roman occupation of England, with '-caster' stemming from the Latin word castra (in Old English, ceaster) and the first part of the word referring to the river Lune; thus Lancaster is the 'settlement on the Lune'.
