* Who are Jobson and Nell? Jobson is a lowly cobbler and Nell is his sweet wife. They starred  in The Devil to Pay or, The Wives Metamorphos’d, a
ballad farce first performed in 1731. Revivals were popular on the English stage into the nineteenth century. A performance was staged at Covent Garden as late as  1828, and even children’s books drew from the theme and illustrated Jobson and  Nell.
