TRIP TO MARROW-BONE, A. English, Country Dance Tune (9/4 or 9/8 time). G Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody with directions to a country dance was printed in all four editions of London publisher John Young's Second Volume of the Dancing Master (1710-1728). It was also printed by rival London publisher John Walsh in several of his publications, including The Complete Country Dancing-Master, Volume the Fourth (1740), and his The Second Book of the Compleat Country Dancing-Master (1719).

Marylebone is a fashionable area of East London. Wikipedia gives:

Marylebone gets its name from a church dedicated to St Mary, represented now by St Marylebone Parish Church (1817); the original church was built on the bank of a small stream or "bourne", called the Tybourne or Tyburn. This stream rose further north in what is now Swiss Cottage, eventually running along what is now Marylebone Lane, which preserves its curve within the grid pattern. The church and the surrounding area later became known as St Mary at the Bourne, afterwards corrupted to Marybourne, Marybone, Mary-la-bonne (French was the language of the aristocracy at the time), and now Marylebone.
