Sir William of Tyburn[1] was the original spirit of the River Tyburn and one of the sons of Father Thames. He is said to have died during the Great Stink in 1858 as a result of the pollution of the Victorian era. The river became inhabited by Lady Ty, a new genius loci of Mother Thames’s court in the 1970s.[2]

Appearances Edit

Peter have met this version of Tyburn twice, or so he thinks. The first time was when he was stuck under a platform at Oxford Circus Underground Station,[3] and the second time when he was following Reynard Fossman through Green Park.[1]

Tyburn may also have been responsible for the flood of water outside Lady Ty's house, when she almost was assassinated. If so, he was probably also seen by a David Hantsworth.[1]
