    'To the Gentlemen in Black Velvet'
    "To the Gentlemen in Black Velvet"
    It was in Hampton Court Park, on the north side of the River by Raven's Eyott, that King William III's horse stumbled over a mole hill and threw the unfortunate and unpopular Monarch to his death in 1702. Thereafter, the Jacobites - supporters of James II, who was deposed by William III - would toast the health of 'the little gentleman in black velvet'. From http://www.the-river-thames.co.uk/misc.htm
