The description reads: "also known as "The new mariners", to distinguish it from "The mariners" ("Ye gentlemen of England")". The source of this statement is unknown, but it represents the exact reverse of the situation. Most extant copies of "You Gentlemen" refer to that as the New Mariners, "To all you ladies" seems never to have had a sub-title. The title of the earliest example in print I have been able to trace is absolutely explicit "To all you ladies now at land, a favorite song taken from the celebrated glee of Fa la la sung at Harrison and Knyvett's concerts, as a companion to The New Mariners or You gentlemen of England". 1794.
