HAPPY FAMILIES

I wrote a poem a while back which mentioned Master Bun and looked in vain on the net for the rest of the Happy Families surnames. Happily, a family friend has tracked them down for me (though these may not be the only names ever used):

Mr Sole the FISHMONGER
Mr Bun the BAKER
Mr Stamp the POSTMAN
Mr Bud the FLORIST
Mr Field the FARMER
Mr Bacon the BUTCHER
Mr Constable the POLICEMAN
Mr Green the GROCER
Mr Chalk the TEACHER
