Former RSCDS Archivist Marilyn Healy says:

The RSCDS 1985 edition called [the dance] Hey! Jenny, Come Down to Jock, whereas the 2001 revised edition called it Jenny, Come Down to Jock. (The tune is given as Hey! Jenny, Come Down to Jock in both versions). The source we give for it is Allan’s Ballroom Guide (c.1880) and it is also in David Anderson’s Ball-Room Guide (approx. same time) and both call it Jenny, Come down to Jock (We have Allan and David Anderson pocket books in the archive.)

In current RSCDS publications the dance is called »Jenny, …« (without the »Hey!«).
