This tune comes from an old collection of New England fiddle music.
this jig also is played in the last track of the Chieftain’s ‘Santiago,’ I think.

“Stepney’s Rant”- “Jackson’s” alternate setting…
Just found this one, appears to be an alternate setting to "Jackson’s Fancy" under the name "Stepney’s Rant". Both parts are fairly similar, with the second down an octave:
T: Stepney’s ("Jackson’s Fancy")
S: The Fiddler’s Tune-Book; Jigs & Quicksteps, Trips & Humours; p.41, No.175.
