Just found a comment in a Morris site:

Some of the Cotswold tunes are very old - for example ' Trunkles ' - while others come from the music hall era (' Getting Upstairs ' and ' Old Black Joe ')It is probably true to say that they were generally popular tunes of the day adapted to fit the dances.

It's from an article on Father Kenneth Loveless here http://www.themorrisring.org/More/tunes.html
