In the nineteenth century, a "wrecker" was someone who, during the darkness hours, with the aid of lights, lured ships into wrecking themselves onto rocks or beaches with an eye towards eventually scavenging the contents.

"The Wrecker's Daughter" was the title of a play by James Sheridan Knowles...published in 1838. I found some speculation (via web-search) that this tune was part of the incidental music for the play.
