The Bodleian Library has a number of Broadsides of this song usually with the lyrics of this
THE BONNY MOON

However, this broadside dates changes to the lyrics as March 3rd 1825 (unfortunately it is a poor copy and does not show fully the title of the original song) THE SWEET SILVER MOON
but it certainly shows that the song was in existance pre 1825
