MISS CLEMENTINA STEWART'S STRATHSPEY. Scottish, Strathspey. E Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. Composed by William Shepherd (c. 1760-1812). Shepherd also composed a melody called "Miss Stewart of Ballechen’s Favourite," on the same first page of his collection as "Miss Clementina Stewart's Strathspey." The estate of Ballenchin was held by Hope Steuart (1761-1834) at the time of Shepherd's 1793 publication, but he married some ten years after Shepherd's publication, however, his sister (daughter of Robert Steuart (1727-1783) and Isabella Hope, who married in 1759), was named Clementina. She died, unmarried, in 1855.
