Numbering of pieces:
The numbering, order and titles of this music varies between publishers.
I am using the following system.
Hope that is useful.

This movement (the alla hornpipe), was originally written for the 2nd suite in D.

 This arrangement is based on a separate variant in F (HWV331) that Handel wrote at a different time.

 The original F variant does not have any trumpet parts, unlike the original one in D from the 2nd Suite, which does!

It is often added as a finale  to the 1st Suite in F.
