'''MR. LANE'S MAGGOT'''. AKA - "Lane's Maggot." AKA and see “[[Polly for ever]],” “[[Richmond Ball]],” "[[Round (The)]]." English, Country Dance Tune (2/2 time). D Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. A maggot is another term for a dram; a unit of liquid measure, and also meant a small thing of little consequence or a plaything; from the Italian ''maggioletta''. Maggots were longways country dances of the late 17th century often dedicated to a personage or named for a composer; they appear for the first time in the 9th edition of the '''Dancing Master''' (1695). "Mr. Lane's Maggot" is attributed to Mr. Lane who was dancing master to Charles II, who also composed or is associated with Playford's "[[Lane’s Minuet]]" and "[[Mr. Lane's Trumpet Minuet (1)]]" and "[[Mr. Lane's Trumpet Minuet (2)]]."
