I must admit, I've not studied Shipway's Campanalogia in
much detail, and hadn't been aware that the composition
appeared in it. Thanks for drawing my attention to it!
Hopefully I can rectify that soon as I've just ordered a
copy of the 1886 Bell News reprint of it.

That would be my guess too, though it's possible it was
already dying out by 1890 when the CC was founded.
Bannister's 1874 book does not include it, though he devotes
less than two sides to Bob Minor. I'm not sure what other
books there were during the period 1852-1890, but it would
be interesting to know whether any of them include
compositions along these lines.
