The first quadrille figure was fashioned from "Black Joke (1) (The)", the second figure was "Brighton Camp," and the fourth "Irish Washerwoman (1)." "Royal Irish Quadrille No. 1" (Black Joke), "Royal Irish Quadrille No. 2" (Brighton Camp/Girl I Left Behind Me), and "Royal Irish Quadrille No. 4" (Irish Washerwoman) were entered into the 1850 music manuscript (p. 93) of shoemaker and fiddler William Winter, of Bagborough, Somerset, southwest England, who elsewhere in his ms. also had the 4th quadrille entered as "Irish Washerwoman".
