Weller (Sam)

.

Pickwick’s factotum. His wit, fidelity, archness, and wide-àwakedness are inimitable. (Dickens Pickwick Papers.)

Tony Weller. Father of Sam. Type of the old stage-coachman; portly in size, and dressed in a broad-brimmed hat, great-coat of many capes, and top-boots. His stage-coach was his castle, and elsewhere he was as green as a sailor on terra firma. (Dickens: Pickwick Papers.)
