Thomas Portarlington Travers, of Brinkley Court, Brinkley-cum-Snodsfield-in-the-Marsh, Worcestershire (sometimes given as Brinkley Manor, Market Snodsbury), London address 47 Charles St. Second husband of Aunt Dahlia in Clustering Round Young Bingo, Jeeves and the Song of Songs, Right Ho, Jeeves, The Code of the Woosters, Jeeves and the Feudal Spirit, Jeeves Makes an Omelet, Jeeves in the Offing, Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves, Much Obliged, Jeeves, Aunts Aren't Gentlemen. Married Dahlia the year Bluebottle won the Cambridgeshire. A bit of a squirt with greyish hair and a face like a walnut, he made a pile of money out in the East, but in so doing put his digestion on the blink. In Clustering Round Young Bingo, he won't live in the country; Anatole is hired as chef to mollify his digestion and disposition. Nervous about burglars, with a delusion that everybody known even slightly to the police is lurking in the garden, waiting for a chance to break into the house. Rich as creosote and eloquent on the subject of income tax and supertax, he is a kindly old bimbo but dislikes most of his houseguests and thinks most of his circle fatheaded asses. His four-year sponsorship of Aunt Dahlia's publication Milady's Boudoir, which he calls Milady's Nightshirt, supposedly ends with its sale to L.G. Trotter in Jeeves and the Feudal Spirit, but in Jeeves Makes an Omelet he is still footing the bill for it. His collection of old silver has become one of the finest in England in Jeeves in the Offing.
