The Dictionary of National Biography carries the most likely explanation of origins of this legend.-

Sir THOMAS MYDDELTON,(1550-1631), Lord Mayor of London,1613. Myddelton was four times married: first, about 1586, secondly, about 1590, thirdly, to Elizabeth Olmstead. But when, towards the end of his life, Myddelton married for the fourth time, this time the young Flemish widow of a London brewer, Anne Wittewronge, her supposed infidelity was the source of a popular song, ‘Room for cuckolds, here comes my lord mayor’.
