Beggarstaff, Paul. Paul Beggarstaff was created by Fred M. White and appeared in six stories in The London Magazine in 1905 and 1906, beginning with “The Chronicle of the Yellow Girl” (The London Magazine, Aug. 1905).

Paul Beggarstaff is a Con Man. In a very short time—a few months—Paul Beggarstaff goes from being a nobody to being famous as a consultant and amateur detective, the “Sage of Tyburn Hill,” thanks to his apparent occult abilities. But in reality Beggarstaff is Paul Clippburn, who despite a promising background failed at making a living in London and decided to become a successful “humbug” instead. He only takes cases that to which he already knows the answer or to which he can find the answer with the help of his many friends.
