"St Ives is most famous for the nursery rhyme and riddle *As I Was Going to St Ives*. It is not clear whether the rhyme refers to the Cambridgeshire town or one of several other St Ives around the country. However, this St Ives in Cambridgeshire has a pub named 'The Seven Wives', and it used to be a serious market town, much more famous than a fishing village of the same name." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Ives,_Cambridge...
