Part 6

Japheth Tickle. An uncommonly named gentleman, who would sit comfortably on the pages of a Dickens novel. He was an actual, factual Londoner, as attested by this foundation stone. But where is it? And does anyone have more information on this splendid chap?

crown court, cheapside? quick research indicates tickle died in 1915, was a member of the corporation for cheap ward, and a deputy alderman. Died at age 78. Source: The Times (Nov 22, 1915)

Japheth seems to have been born in Bolton, Lancashire in 1837/38. Two marriages are registered, once in 1860 in Manchester, and again in 1870 in Shoreditch, London. He died in 1915 in London, having lived in Cheapside for a while. (all info gleaned from One son, Ronald Japheth died in British Columbia in 1949. I've not found out if John Tickle from Big Brother and Brainiacs is related at all...


Japeth Tickle is on a plaque on basinghall st, ec2
