Thanks for that note on the tune correspondence, Brian. It isn't at all unlikely that the late C19 song was based on the older one, given that link; there are plenty of examples of similar re-making, of course. Something I shall have to follow up; meanwhile, if we can consider them related after all, that broadens the scope of the discussion.
