In my neck of the woods this tune (under the name "Sherborne Waltz" is often included within a set of waltzes to accompany a ceilidh dance called: "the Waltz Country Dance".

Under the name: "Orange in Bloom" it’s a Cotswold Morris dance tune from the village of Sherborne in the county of Gloucestershire, England.

Don’t know whether this is a coincidence, but less than a mile west of the village of Sherborne is a farm called "Oranges Farm".

"Borne" or "Bourne" = River

Raven…

Thanks for this version!
Interestingly the version in Raven’s English Country Dance tunes is set rather differently to what is here - it’s set in 6 8 time and has a ‘c’ part with 4 bars of 4 4 at the start!
