MISS MAULE OF PANMURE. Scottish, Reel. C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (Surenne): AAB (Athole, Gow, Lowe): AABB' (Kerr). Composed by Scottish fiddler, composer, music publisher and bandleader Nathaniel Gow (1763-1831), for another member of the influential Maule family (headed by William Ramsay Maule, Lord Panmure of Brechin and Navar), for whom he composed a number of melodies (see “Mr. Maule’s Frolick” for more). There were five daughters (and five sons) of William Maule and his wife Patricia Hernon, who were married in 1794; Patricia Maule (1795-1859), Elizabeth Maule (1796-1852), Mary Maule (1799-?), Lucy Maule (1806-?) and Georgiana Maule (?-1833). Since the appears in Aird's Selections, vol. 5 (1797), it was presumably composed in honor of the first two young or infant girls.
