This sheet music was most likely purchased in Sydney in 1839 from the music shop of Irishman Andrew Ellard (c1780-1859). Andrew had previously run a business in Dublin as a music publisher, music seller and music instrument maker, 1819-1838, and was the father of Francis Ellard who had established a music business in Sydney in 1833. Many of these pieces of music bound together in a single volume, by Sydney bookbinder C. Kern, contain a label for Ellard's Dublin Music Saloon and was probably part of the stock he had brought out to Australia. Ellard closed his Sydney business at the beginning of 1840 and Alexander Maconochie, commandant of Norfolk Island, purchased the remaining stock of music scores and musical instruments for use at the convict settlement.
