Barnaby (Grose 1811 Dictionary)

Barnaby

An old dance to a quick movement. See Cotton, in his Virgil Travesti; where, speaking of Eolus he has these lines,

Bounce cry the port-holes, out they fly,

And make the world dance Barnaby.

Definition taken from The 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue, originally by Francis Grose.
