MISS CLEMENTINA DRUMMOND. AKA and see "Miss Clementina Sarah Drummond of Perth." Scottish, Strathspey. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. The title perhaps refers to Clementina Drummond (1786 - 1865), daughter of Captain James Drummond, Baron Perth. James Drummond managed, in 1784, to reclaim the Drummond estates that had been confiscated by the crown for the family’s involvement in the Rising of 1745, and his property descended to Clementina upon his death in 1800. In 1807 She married the great dandy Peter Robert Burrell, later the twelfth Lord Willoughby de Efesby, and the couple conjoined the family names as Drummond-Burrell. Clementina was one of the young patroness of Almack's, and was considered, along with Lady Castlereagh, to be the highest stickler and overly grand. She and her husband were sometimes intimate friends with King George IV. See Miss Clementina Sarah Drummond of Perth for more.
