#1 was Jefferson Hope.

Correct on #3.

Dingdingding! Yes, indeed, I am the plump, dull London pawnbroker

Jabez Wilson

who was conned in "The Red-Headed League": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Red-Headed_League

I've used him for IQs in several previous Botticelli rounds, most recently in June. Good job, Prof. P.! Please start a new January thread for a "K" person.
