This waltz appears twice in the Ash manuscript, once as the Cobourg Waltz and again as an untitled piece with a few notes changed around. It also can be found as "The Hungarian Waltz" in other contemporary sources It appears to have originally come (as Hungarian Waltz) from a 1819 Spanish comic ballet called "Love Among The Roses"
Allen Ash lived in the village of Baltimore not far from Cobourg, Ontario. The waltz may have been named for the the town, or like the town itself, the name may refer to Queen Victoria's husband Albert, who was the Prince of Saxe-Cobourg in Germany.
