The collector of this reel, Jack McConachie, was a member of the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing. He discovered a manuscript in Oxford University's Bodleian Library, "A Collection of the Newest Country Dances Performed in Scotland" written in 1740 at Edinburgh by D.A. Young, W.M.
McConachie adapted the phrasing of the dances to bring them more into line with 20th century Scottish country dancing of his time, while keeping true to the original style and character of the original dances.
The book "Scottish country dances of the eighteenth century" was published in 1960 by the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing.
