John Gilpin sees his family off in a chaise-and-pair, 1878, (c1918). Creator: Randolph Caldecott

John Gilpin sees his family off in a chaise-and-pair, 1878, (c1918). Mrs Gilpin, her sister and their children set off for Edmonton. There is no room in the carriage so Gilpin will ride there on his horse. The spire of St Mary-le-Bow on Cheapside in the City of London is clearly visible behind them. John Gilpin was the subject of a comic ballad of 1782 by William Cowper entitled "The Diverting History of John Gilpin". The ballad, based on real-life character, describes how, on a journey to Edmonton (north in London), Gilpin, a draper, became separated from his wife and children after losing control of his horse, and ended up in the town of Ware, ten miles away from his intended destination. From "The Diverting History of John Gilpin", by William Cowper. [Frederick Warne and Co., London & New York, c1918]

Queen Henrietta Maria's Entry into London, 1625 (1903). Artist: Unknown

Queen Henrietta Maria's Entry into London, 1625 (1903). Henrietta Maria of France (1609-1669) was Queen Consort of England, Scotland, and Ireland as the wife of King Charles I (1600-1649). She married Charles by proxy on 11 May 1625. They were then married in person at St Augustine's Church, Canterbury, Kent, on 13 June 1625, but Henrietta Maria's Catholic religion made it impossible for her to be crowned with her husband in an Anglican service. In the end, her failure to be crowned went down badly with the London crowds. From London in the Time of the Stuarts, by Sir Walter Besant. [Adam & Charles Black, London, 1903]
