According to researchers at the universities in Durham and Lisbon , the story originated more than five millennia ago, based on a wide-spread archaic story form which is now classified by folklorists as ATU The Boy Who Stole Ogre's Treasure. Jack is a young, poor boy living with his widowed mother and a dairy cow on a farm cottage. The cow's milk was their only source of income. When the cow stops giving milk , Jack's mother tells him to take her to the market to be sold. On the way, Jack meets a bean dealer who offers magic beans in exchange for the cow, and Jack makes the trade. When he arrives home without any money, his mother becomes angry, throws the beans out of the window, and sends Jack to bed without dinner.

Once upon a time, there lived a widow woman and her son, Jack, on their small farm in the country. Every day, Jack would help his mother with the chores - chopping the wood, weeding the garden and milking the cow. But despite all their hard work, Jack and his mother were very poor with barely enough money to keep themselves fed. We must sell our cow, Old Bess, and with the money buy enough seed to plant a good crop. I'll go into town and sell Bessy. So Jack took the cow's halter in his hand, walked through the garden gate and headed off toward town.
