The dance was written to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Milton Keynes Branch of the RSCDS and the original tune is Jan's Jig by David Cunningham. The name "Milton Keynes" is not an amalgamation of the names of two former villages: "Milton" and "Keynes". Neither is it named after the poet (Milton) and the economist (Keynes). The town of "Milton" was recorded in the Domesday Book as "Mideltone" in 1086. In the 12th century, a manorial grant was given to the "de Cahaignes" family, who settled there. The name was anglicized into "Kaynes" by the 13th century. From "Mideltone Kaynes (recorded in 1227) the modern English name of "Milton Keynes" was derived.
