Becky:

Rest assured that you have it correct as "Canongate." Both the RSCDS
Pocket Book, Revised Edition 1960, and the RSCDS Book 9 with music give
this spelling, together with the other sources you cite (not to mention
the Edinburgh street name). I like to think of the cadgers among the
(church) canons, not military cannons!

Hope you enjoy this superb dance!
