Origin of "The Black Pig"

Can anyone tell me anything about this tune?
I can’t find any reference to it under the name I know it by.

It’s shown as a reel in "Jerry Holland’s Collection of Fiddle Tunes" and is Attributed to J.H.

Hint of Julia Delaney?

For me, the first part has quite a bit of the feel of Julia Delaney about it. It’s good. The second part is rather disappointing in comparison.

Reference to Captain Pugwash’s ship?
