WELLINGTON HORNPIPE [1]. English, Hornpipe. England, Shropshire. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Editor Ashman believes this may have been a locally composed hornpipe, since Wellington was a small semi-industrial town in east Shropshire where his source, John Moore, was born and worked; however, a variant called "Borobridge Hornpipe" appears in a Yorkshire MS collection of the mid-19th century, suggesting to him that perhaps the melody was more widely known and that only the name was local.
