MADAM CATHRIN'S HORNPIPE. AKA - "Madam Catbrin's Hornpipe." English, "Old" or Triple Hornpipe (3/2 time). A Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). ABCDE. The melody was published in London by Henry Playford in Thomas Marsden's Collection of Original Lancashire Hornpipes, Old and New (1705, p. 22). Nothing is known of Marsden, save that he played the violin, and that his name implies connections with the North of England (although nothing specifically indicates where he was from or where he lived). There is a single surviving copy of his volume, held by the British Library.
