Try "allendale" instead of "allandale", and google will present you with a number of useful references. Always try alternative spellings if you don't at first succeed.
Unattributed sheet music is at the The Lester Levy Collection:
Lucy Gray of Allendale
The music (I don't yet know who wrote the words) was written by James Hook (1746-1827) who also composed 'The Lass of Richmond Hill', 'Within a Mile of Edinbro' Town', and around two thousand other songs; largely for the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, where he was long the resident organist.
