Extra info
The Society’s version of ...

The Society’s version of this dance can be traced to "Thompson's Compleat Collection of 200 Favourite Country Dances" (c. 1755) where it was published without setting in bars 1-4 and 9-12.

Several meanings of the name have been discussed. A very likely on is that name traces back to a card game, since the tune is also known under similar names like "Lamb Skinnett", "Lambskinnet", "Lanquenet", "Lansquenet". Lansquenet is the French writing and pronunciation of the German term "Landsknecht" which refers to a foot soldier in foreign service. And there is also a card game with the same name likely introduced by these mercenary soldiers.

Webster’s Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) states for "Lansquenet":
1. A German foot soldier in foreign service in the 15th and 16th centuries; a soldier of fortune; — a term used in France and Western Europe.
2. A game at cards, vulgarly called lambskinnet.
