LORD YARBOROUGH'S MARCH. English, March (cut time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Perhaps a march unique to Lincolnshire. It appears twice in Thomas John Dixon's manuscript music books (once each in volume one and two), the earliest dating to just before the turn of the 19th century (c. 1798). The only other appearance of the tune is in the music manuscript book of Joshua Gibbons (Tealby, Lincolnshire).

Source for notated version: the 1823-26 music mss. of papermaker and musician Joshua Gibbons (1778-1871, of Tealby, near Market Rasen, Lincolnshire Wolds) [Sumner].

Printed sources: Sumner (Lincolnshire Collections, vol. 1: The Joshua Gibbons Manuscript), 1997; p. 76.
