Toogood, Thomus

A lawyer at Gray’s Inn with a jolly family of twelve children. He was a cousin of Mrs. Crawley, who persuaded her husband to consult him in the matter of the stolen check. Though his help was but grudgingly accepted, he was successful in uncovering the real thief, and so cleared Mr. Crawley’s name.

"He was a good-humoured, cheery-looking man about fifty years of age, with grizzled hair and sunburnt face, and large whiskers" - The Last Chronicle of Barset; also in the play Did He Steal It?
