Looks like you have the 18th Century version of a "truck gun" :)
That laid under a carriage seat, in the corner of a barn as a rat-getter or a home brew property defense piece that got banged around.

Who knows it might have been used well into the 20th century. Audie Murphy hunted with a Kentucky rifle growing up poor in the Depression era. Powder and hand cast balls were cheaper than cartridges and new guns were expensive.
