Title   Newcastle
History   Simpson feels that the surviving tune is not the one which had some, currency in Elizabethan days. He points out that wrenchings of accent, are necessary to accomplish the fit of Playford's dance tune to a, curious fragment of text found in the 18th century Percy folio MS, a, source of dubious authenticity itself., Came you not from, Newcastle?, Came yee not there away? &c, It is quite possible that, this dance was inspired by William, Duke of Newcastle, a royalist who, remained in London and bent his interests towards the theatre during, the interregnum.
