Robert "Robin" Adair was  born in Dublin around 1714 . He was a surgeon-colonel in the British army. Though her family disapproved of the match because of his lower status, Lady Caroline Keppel (c. 1734–1769) married him, and in response to her family, wrote this song in the 1750s. He died in 1790.
