See note for “ A Mile to Ride.” “Stannerton Hopping” was printed by Northumbrian musician William Vickers in his music manuscript of 1770 (wherein it also appears as “ A Mile to Ride” and “Stanhope in Weardale”).
The title appears in Henry Robson's list of popular Northumbrian song and dance tunes ("The Northern Minstrel's Budget"), which he published c. 1800. In parts of England a ‘hopping’ refers to the harvesting of hops.
