“Jack and Jill” (sometimes “Jack and Gill”, particularly in earlier versions) is a traditional English nursery rhyme. The original rhyme dates back to the 18th century and different numbers of verses were later added, each with variations in the wording. Throughout the 19th century new versions of the story were written featuring different incidents. A number of theories continue to be advanced to explain the rhyme’s historical origin.
Jack and Gill
Went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water
Jack fell down
And broke his crown,
And Gill came tumbling after.
Later the spelling was changed to Jill and more verses were added to carry the story further
