Was there an original Goody Two-Shoes?

As the subject of the first children’s book of the same name, the character Goody Two-Shoes helped to usher in the children’s book industry.

Goody Two-Shoes was a poor girl, who, when given a pair of shoes, became so happy that she told everyone she met about them.

The tale was written by Oliver Goldsmith in 1765.
