Cheesacre, Samuel

Mrs. Greenow’s unsuccessful suitor, whom she induced to marry Charlie Fairstairs.

In The Noble Jilt, represented by Herr von Hoppen.

"...a fat Norfolk farmer, with not an idea beyond the virtues of stall-feeding. He was a stout, florid man, of about forty-five, a bachelor, apparently much attached to ladies' society, beating no sign of age except that he was rather bald, and that grey hairs had mixed themselves with his whiskers, very fond of his farming, and yet somewhat ashamed of it when he found himself in what he considered to be polite circles. And he was, moreover, a little inclined to seek the honour which comes from a well-filled and liberally-opened purse" -Can You Forgive Her?
