Mrs. Billickin

Mrs Billickin is landlady to Rosa Bud in London following the young lady’s flight from Cloisterham and the advances of John Jasper. Rosa is introduced to Mrs Billickin via Mr Grewgious, and while the somewhat hypochondriac landlady is most accommodating to Miss Bud, even to the extent of pointing out the various flaws in her own apartments, she does not warm so readily to Rosa’s fellow lodger Miss Twinkleton, taking offence at the latter’s condescending airs and educated mentality.
