GUEST,BobL Meaning: Parson Upon Dorothy (29) Origin: Parson Upon Dorothy 28 Jan 13

Playford's "Dancing Master" includes a dance (well, two or three actually) called "Parson Upon Dorothy", a.k.a. "The Shepherd's Daughter". Does anyone have a clue where this title originates? A lot of dances were simply named after the songs whose tunes they used, but a few are Irish titles assimilated into English: I wondered if this might be one of them.
