MISS DALRYMPLE. AKA and see "Carleton House." Scottish, Jig or March (6/8 time). B Flat Major (Dow): C Major (Robbins): D Major (Rook). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. John Glen (1891) finds the earliest appearance of this tune in print in Daniel Dow's c. 1775 Ancient Scots Music (p. 7), although Dow must have liked the tune for he published it around the same year in his Twenty Minuets and Sixteen Reels or Country Dances (p 27, appended with the tune set in the key of 'D' for the flute). London publisher Thomas Preston printed the jig in his Twenty-Four Country Dances for the Year 1804 under the title "Carleton House." It was entered into the large 1840 music manuscript collection (p. 200, as "Miss Dalrymple's Jigg") of multi-instrumentalist John Rook, of Waverton, near Wigton, Cumbria.
