Poor Humpty Dumpty - 1648

Humpty Dumpty was the name given to a Royalist cannon mounted on St. Mary's Church, Colchester, England, at the time of the 1648 siege of the town during the Civil War?
General Fairfax, commander of the Parliamentary forces brought two "culverins" which brought down the belltower with the cannon. Apparently all the kings horses and all the kings men could not put Humpty together again.
