Pagett, Mister. Mr. Pagett was created by W.P. Drury and appeared in a number of stories and two collections from 1904 to 1930, beginning with The Peradventures of Private Pagett.

Mr. Pagett is a Tall Tale Teller. Mr. Pagett is a former Marine who works as landlord of an inn, a parish councilor, and a vicar’s warden. He has a series of tall-tale-style adventures, several of which have more than a hint of the supernatural of them, as in "Pagett meets a sailor on the Moor," in which Pagett meets the ghost of Sir Francis Drake.
