I only got a look in the Dover facsimile version or "Pills to Purge Melancholly", on the open shelves at the Bodliean. Because I requested the wrong 1715 "Pills"
I think correct "Pills" (both edited by Thomas D'Urfey) was published in 1719 but most songs were listed as composed by a person but some, including the Trooper, did not. The Trooper was most definitely described as an "old song". I take that to mean more than 20 years and probably older than memory.
no other info.
