The roots of the story, or poem, of Jack and Jill are in France. The Jack and Jill referred to are said to be King Louis XVI -- Jack -- who was beheaded (lost his crown), and followed by his Queen Marie Antoinette -- Jill -- (who came tumbling after). The words and lyrics to the Jack and Jill poem were made more acceptable as a story for children by providing a happy ending! The actual beheadings occurred during the Reign of Terror in 1793. The first publication date for the lyrics of the Jack and Jill rhyme is 1795, which ties in with the history and origins. The Jack and Jill poem is also known as Jack and Gill -- the misspelling of Gill is not uncommon in nursery rhymes as they are usually passed from generation to generation by word of mouth.
On the gruesome subject of beheading: it was the custom that following execution the severed head was held up by the hair by the executioner. This was not, as many people think, to show the crowd the head, but in fact to show the head the crowd and it's own body! Consciousness remains for at least eight seconds after beheading until lack of oxygen causes unconsciousness and eventually death. The guillotine is associated with the French but the English were the first to use this device as described in our section containing Mary Mary Quite Contrary Rhyme.

That if you don't be careful you might get hurt
Jack and Jill are names in a nursery rhyme. For example Little Bo Peep, Little Boy Blue, and Little Ms. Muffet. They are names that are in different nursery rhymes.
The only reason I can think of for you to come falling after is that you are Jill from the nursery rhyme, Jack and Jill as Jill came tumbling, or falling after.
Jack and Jill went up the hillTo fetch a pail of water.Jack fell down and broke his crown And Jill came tumbling after.
No one knows when, but i think it was a long time ago. :)
"Jack fell down and broke his crown". Crown is another word for head.
In the rhyme Jack and Jill, I estimate Jack and Jill to be 5-7 years of age.

It wasn't Willie who fell down and broke his crown, it was Jack and Jill was the one who went tumbling after him. This is from the Jack and Jill nursery rhyme.
