Jack Horner was a steward to the Abbot of Glastonbury, and he had to take a pie to King George VII as a present from the Abbot. The pudding contained title deeds to 12 manors sent to the King in the hope he would not pull down Glastonbury Abbey. The King only received 11 deeds. Little Jack Horner Sat in the corner, Eating of Christmas pie: He put in his thumb, And pulled out a plum, And said, "What a good boy am I!"
