First published 1844 another one with different theories of origin.
One theory is that the doctor was in fact William Laud, an archbishop of Canterbury; another that it refers to Edward I and the third that its actually an adaptation of Marlowe’s Doctor Faustus play.

Right up to his middle,
And never went there again
