Little Jack Horner
Little Jack Horner sat in a corner,
Eating a Christmas pie;
He put in his thumb and pulled out a plum,
And said, "What a good boy am I!"
History of Little Jack Horner
According to legend, Little Jack Horner was actually
Thomas Horner, steward to the Abbot of Glastonbury during the reign of King
Henry VIII. Rumor had it that the inquisitive king would soon be reaching for
some Glastonbury holdings. The nervous Abbot, hoping to appease the royal
appetite, sent the king a special gift: a pie containing twelve deeds to manor
houses. On his way to London, the not-so-loyal courier Horner stuck his thumb
into the pie and extracted the deed for Mells Manor, a plum piece of real estate,
where his descendants live to this day.
