Saw Ye A Lassie Of Fifteen Years has been added to 2 tunebooks.
From "Sources of Irish Traditional Irish Music" Vol I, p.240 #1253
Also in O’Farrell’s Pocket Companion Vol.
This tune is also given in an early nineteenth-century collection of tunes for use in fashionable UK watering-places. such as Bath and Tunbridge Wells, under the title ‘Would you Have a Young Virgin’. I haven’t checked, but I think it would be one of the Thompson ‘200 Country Dances’ volumes.
