Devonshire, Georgiana, Duchess of 1757-1806    
I have a Silent Sorrow Here   GM7:13, LV031/080
  According to GM, this "song from The Stranger. The words by R. B. Sheridan. The air by the Duchess of Devonshire."   In LV, several versions are titled "Favorite Song in the Stranger".  LV031/080 is the version closest to that described in GM (though different key). Here is an arrangement (in correct key) with two verses.   An arrangement (.pdf file, 80KB)
     
Dibdin, Charles 1745-1814    
The Soldier's Adieu   GM3:12 LV115/115
  There are several versions of this song in LV, search on "adieu my only life" in 1st line. LV115/115 appears to me to be the most like the Austen version.  Here is an arrangement. More information on Dibdin as a composer of patriotic songs and Soldier's Adieu is available at ParlourSongs.com   For another interesting view of this song, look at an original publication of the words on the Revolution and Romanticism site.
According to GM, the word 'Soldier' has been replaced with 'Sailor' in the Austen notebook (and it is customary to use Sailor in performance.) (As you know, Austen's brothers were in the navy.)

The Lucky Escape   GM3:22 LV030/057
  'I that once was a Ploughman a Sailor am now'.  Version in LV is very like that described in GM, but different key.    
     
The Lamplighter   GM7:20 LV119/048
  The version in LV looks to me to be an arrangement of a later time than Austen.  But it is the only version of the song I have yet found online.  Also called 'LampLighter Dick".    
     

Composers for which I have not yet found the Austen music online or easily available:
Dalayrac, Nicolas-Marie 1753-1809
Davaux, Jean Baptiste 1742-1822
Duni, Egidio Romualdo 1708-1785
