Searching for the name of this French tune

A2 AcBA | B2 BdcB | A2 AcBA |1 G4 FG :|2 G4 |

My notation was quickly written down and might be a bit off but should be close enough to recognise the melody.

I'm fairly certain it's an old French melody (around 18th century, I guess).
Best I could find on folktunefinder was a mazurka called "Catherine" but it's not quite the one I'm searching for.

I appreciate any guesses. Thanks.

This is Valse a Cadet. You are missing a third part, but if you search that name on YouTube you will find it easily.

Enjoy!

Ah Gary you're a treasure when it comes to French music. Much appreciated. Maybe the tune will now stop to haunt me as it has done for the past days. (:)

It's a tune worth being haunted by and it falls nicely on the melodeon!

Thanks for the kind words,
