The tune appears in a few American publications of the early 19th century, including Joseph Carr's Carr's Pocket Companion (New York, 1800), George Willig's Willig's Collection of Popular Country Dances, No. 4 (Philadelphia, 1812), Graupner's A Collection of County Dances and Cotillions (Boston, c. 1808), and London publisher John Ball's The Gentleman's Amusement Book 3 (1815).
