I remember the Bubonic Plague being first proposed as a possibility for this rhyme as a child, I still believe it is very lightly to be true. The Plague was known and feared by all and a rhyme seems to be certain to have been made up, due to the high level of fear would quite probably survive the test of time even after the exact meaning was forgotten.

I think Humpty Dumpty was more lightly to be a Mortar or Howitzer rather than a "Cannon", otherwise a very credible explanation of this popular nursery rhymes origins! (http://www.rhymes.org.uk/humpty_dumpty.htm)

The real reason behind most nursery rhymes still remain unclear but this website (http://www.rhymes.org.uk) has certainly made me think and also increased my knowledge of history...

If the "maid" was the original guillotine why are they now called guillotines? I thought the guillotine was invented by the Frenchman Dr Guillotine - is this not true?
