A Trip to Hengrave: Refers to Hengrave Hall, at that time inhabited by Sir Thomas Gage and family, his son Edward being born there in March 1812. The house was in the Gage family (Catholic recusants) for many years, although it had been used by an order of Belgian nuns from 1794-1802. Many tunes of the period were titled “A Trip to …” It maybe that John Reeve composed it for a particular engagement at Hengrave, as many upper class people held private balls at the time.
