: Can anyone tel me where the phrase "to each their own" comes from, and hopefully settle an extremely pedantic argument as to whether the phrase is that or "each to their own"?

You'll find some suggestions in the archive, under "To each his own." Back one page, top of the page, seach box. Or:

I think you are both close, but neither gets the brass ring.
