Old Woman

Information About Old Woman

"Old Woman" is better known as "There Was An Old Woman Who Lived In A Shoe" and is an old English nursery rhyme dating back to at least the 18th century.

The earliest printed version was found in Joseph Ritson's "Gammer Gurton's Garland" of 1794.

There exist some theories with regards to the rhyme's meaning, most of which revolve around matching the "old woman" with historical figures who had large families. One of whom being Queen Caroline the wife of King George II, who had eight children.
